A sextuplet is a collection of six things. A collection of one thing is a single, two is a duet, three is a trio, four is a quartet, five is a quintet and six is a sextuplet. This term also refers to a multiple birth with six babies.

Sextuplet also refer to six notes within a four-beat time frame, musically.
