Meaning:Ruler's counsel
Another adorable sobriquet that has established itself as a stand-alone first name, Reggie is a gender-neutral title of English and German origin. Reggie comes from the names Reginald and Regina, made up from the elements regin, meaning “counsel” or “advice,” and walt, meaning “ruler,” “king,” or “queen.” Reggie, therefore, ultimately means “ruler’s counsel,” adding a new depth to the seemingly unassuming yet adorable Reggie. If you know your new arrival will be a natural-born leader, Reggie exudes regal vibes and will stand to baby as they take on the world.
