What are your impressions of [name]Quirin[/name]?
And how would you pronounce it? (I’d pronounce it KVEE-reen.)
What would you consider as a nn?

Not pregnant or TTC just wondering! Thanks.

My initial thought was KEE-rin. Kind of like [name]Kieran[/name]. I don’t like it much. Nickname, maybe [name]Rin[/name]?

Leaves me cold. It looks kind of like a verb [Inquirin’ minds want to know!] and also has ambiguous pronunciation. Kweerin, Kwy-rin, Kee-rin, Kwur-in.

I love Q names but this isn’t one for me.

I thought it was a youneek way to spell [name]Kieran[/name].

Yeah, that’s what I feared.
I kind of love it in [name]German[/name] (it’s from the Ancient [name]Roman[/name] and [name]Sabine[/name] god [name]Quirinus[/name]) but I couldn’t figure out if it lost all it’s fair in English. (Kind of like [name]Jasper[/name] does in [name]German[/name] and Spanish).
Finding tri-cultural names - that sound similar and keep their flair - outside of [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Alexander[/name] etc can be a challenge.


I like the look of [name]Quirin[/name] and upon first sight, I would’ve pronounced it kweer-in but I don’t like the first syllable said that way! I guess similar to query but with an -in ending. I think you could use [name]Quinn[/name] as a nickname even though it doesn’t have the [name]Quinn[/name] sound.

I’d say ‘kwih-rin’ if I saw it. Like the start of [name]Quinn[/name] but with ‘rin’ on the end. Not really my cup of tea.

honestly, i wouldn’t know how to pronounce it, making me hesitate to use it. at first glance, i’d say it as ‘cuuurin’ however, it is original and if it has a special meaning to you, then use it when the time comes! :slight_smile:
