Quincy or Gabriel — The Bump
Baby Names

Quincy or Gabriel

I am expecting my third child and fist boy. I can’t share my girls’ names because I have a family member who stalks this thread sometimes and we haven’t told them the gender, but they both have very traditional but not common “old lady” style names.

The two names dh and I are both ok with are Quincy and Gabriel. DH likes Quincy best, and I really like it too, but I feel like it is becoming gender neutral, and I personally don’t like gender neutral names. Also, he would want to use Quinn as a nickname and I think that would be even more neutral/feminine sounding. I like Gabriel best (nn Gabe is fine with both of us), but I feel like it is a little more popular than I’d prefer. 

What are your your impressions of these names?

Re: Quincy or Gabriel

  • Quincy is a terrible name - Quentin is MUCH better.  The NN Quinn is pure boy - put on a girl or not. 
    Gabe is just Meh to me.

    I like both. Quinn is popular with girls but not Quincy. Knowing your girls names would determine which one I’d go with since I like both!

    Love Gabriel nn Gabe. Quincy isn't my style. Like the suggestion of Quentin.
  • I dont care for Gabriel but I do like the nick name Gabe.

  • I feel like kids will make fun of him with a name like Quincy. I’d go with Gabriel.

  • Gabriel for sure

    if your daughter have old lady names, I find Quincy to be a very odd choice and Gabriel fits much better
