A to Z Challenge - Q gets no respect

Q is very unique.

Nothing from 1920s, 1930s. or even 2010. Hmmmm. No surprise

But there are some very cool Q names. Look at James Bond movies - just the letter Q is enough.

so, girls - Qi (Chinese) a life force
Querida (Spanish) one who is dearly loved
Quinby (Scandinavian) from the queen's estate
Quorra (Italian) from the heart

boys - Quadir (Arabic) a capable man, one who is competent
Qing (Chinese) of the deep water
Quaid (Irish)  commander of the army
Quinn (Gaelic ) one who provides counsel
Quon (Chinese) A luminous man

Query Q names and question not......


  1. I love the Italian meaning...beautiful.

  2. Great A-Z theme. You have a Spanish Q name but I know of someone who named her daughter Qimsa, from a Spanish dialect, but had trouble registering it there as it wasn't a recognized name. Not from your specified years but thought I'd mention it. It has a meaning of 'third one'.

  3. No surprise there have so few Q names in the 20's and 30's, but I would have guessed Quincey would have been good in the 2000's. Pretty Spanish and Italian girls names with 'Q'.
    The rest of the alphabet should be a bit easier for you...except maybe Z. Thanks for your comments this 3rd week of the challenge.

  4. Quinn is a relatively popular name these days. Good job finding all those "Q" names!

    Have a Happy Easter!
