Although word gender often cannot be reliably determined in Anglo-Norman, there seems to have been a feminine substantive, derived from Latin quindecima, which was separate from the substantival use of quindecimus (see quinzein), and which was also found in Continental French.

The deviants quinzaimie and quinzainne, both attested in the same Foedera document might be alternative interpretations of the same number of minims in the manuscript.
