Pronunciation, varies somewhat by dialect, but one way of saying it is [kintA'nijA]. It's the diminutive of _quintana_, which my dictionary doesn't have, but it's probably a derivative of _quinta_ "country house, villa" (among a few other meanings), so "little country house", maybe? -- "No just cause can be advanced by terror" ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTaylor42
