Quill Valentine’s Day Card with feather or quill and text ‘Be my valentine and we’ll tickle each other happily ever after.

The word quill dates from about the year 1400 when it may have been in the form kil or quiele and referred to a hollow feather or a hollow read. The use of the word to do with pens dates from about the middle of the 16th century. By that time, writing was more general, and so quill came to mean a pen made from a goose quill.

The word pen is interesting in itself because it refers to the female goose (a cob being the male goose). And the word penknife referred to a small knife for trimming the quill to make a nib to hold ink to use in a pen.
