well i love vanessa soo much and the name was extracted from VAN and ESTHER in which Van MEANS FROM THE FAMILY OF..... and ESTHER means a STAR. SO for you out there your name is not just butterfly as some books says but the full blended meaning is FROM THE FAMILY OF STAR.

We are naming our son Talan Pierce, it just sounds so unique and quite strong. It will be great in about 10 years to see the influxe of all these new and original names.

Hey, my name is Quentin and I love it. i've had such good luck with it and even my girlfriend loves my name. My Dad gave me it based on the person named Quentin Tarantino. i've watched all his movies, reservoir dogs, pulp fiction, death proof, killbill, and more. I'm 19 and those movies inspire me to make those kind of movies and be a director one day, one of the best. But I can only hope and work hard. REAL ESTATE

My wife and I named our son Quentin. He goes mostly by Quen, but I like the more formal Quentin. Our family initially had trouble spelling it (Quin, Quinton and Quinten were common variations). Because we're from the'south, pronunciation has Quentin sounding like Quinn'n. But It's not a big deal. And we like the versatility and subtle quirkiness of the name.

My name is Quentin and most people say it right if they see it written. I hate when people ask me what my name is, Because when I tell them they say a totally different name like "Clinton", "Quincy", "Courtney" or "Clifton". Some people can't even say it when it is Written in front of them.

My sons name is Quentin and we love his name. The nicknames keep on coming. He goes by "Baby Q", "Q-ball", or just "Que". he's three months old and the comments keep on coming....mostly good! Wouldn't change it for the world!!!

My grandson is named Quentin Cole. People either love the name or hate it. I think it is a name with character and one that will grow with a child into an adult. So many names are cute for children, but sound silly as an adult.

I am seriously concidering changing my name to Quentin! I really like the'sound of it and i really like the idea of myself with that name. My current name is unique too, but i feel like i want to choose my own name

My boy is named Quentin, I tried for 22 years to have a baby, in the 12th year I had seen a psychic in Florida (something we did as fun on vacation that year) she'said I would have a baby and it would be a boy, couldnt say when, so 10 years later finally I am blessed finding out I was pregnant, at 37 years old. I knew right off he'should be named a "Quentin" although before I found out I had never thought of the name or any name in fear of hexing something :) We call our boy all sorts of fun names too, like QDogg, Qbert, Qbertain, and mostly and usually just Q, but the name Quentin I think sounds strong and manly, smart and exciting. He is a spitting image of my father who died years ago and never got to meet. Are we crazy people to be in love with our creations, I dont think so. :)

In 63 years i've only ever met about a dozen other men named Quentin....and just one woman ! It fascinates me there are so many writers & authors named Quentin !

Well my name is Rachael. I'm only thirteen, so I haven't had many expirences yet with my name. Usually, people spell it "Rachel" and for people who know I have two A's in my name, they usually spell is "Racheal." But I like that its not as common as "Rachel" and "Rachelle," its a simple seven letter name, commonly miss spelled and pronounced.

I named my son Quentin after the charachter Quentin Collins on the old Gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. I think the name'sounds classy and sophisticated. My family finds his name'strange, but I like it. His name is often mispelled as "Quinton" or "Quinten." One person thought his name was "Clinton."
