Name Meaning

However, the high concentration of the surname in Alacant province suggests that in some cases at least it may derive from the personal name Quinto (from Latin Quintus denoting the fifth-born child) or Catalan quinto ‘young soldier’.2 Italian: from the personal name Quinto (see 1 above).3 Italian: possibly a habitational name from any of the numerous places named with this word, as for example Quinto di Treviso (Treviso), Quinto Vicentino (Vicenza), Quinto Vercellese (Vercelli).
