Quincy is a Baby Boy Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Quincy.

The name Quincy is a boy's name of French origin meaning "estate of the fifth son". Quirky in the way that all Q names are quirky, Quincy was once a buttoned-up, patrician New England name, an image countered in recent years by the talented and ultracool musician Quincy Jones (middle name: Delight; nickname: Q). It is the middle name of John Quincy Adams, the sixth U.S. President, who was named for his mother's maternal grandfather, Colonel John Quincy, after whom Quincy, Massachusetts, is named. Another association is the long-running TV show Quincy M.E.. Quincy's high point of popularity was in 1977, when it reached Number 273, but it still has a lot of energy--and not only for a fifth son. Interesting fact: John Quincy Adams pronounced his name Quin-zee.
