Reese is a gender-neutral name of Welsh origins, meaning "enthusiasm," "fire," and "ardor." What was once primarily a boy's name, Reese propelled into girls' territory in the early 2000s, thanks to Hollywood A-lister Reese Witherspoon. A name with such strong ties to stardom should not be snubbed either. Witherspoon works for equality for female actors in the workplace and on screens, and has become one of the world's most influential people—a true testament to her passion. Put a fire in your little one's belly with a name that epitomizes and strives for an equal playing field.
