Other Origin(s):Latin, Norse
Reine is a gender-neutral name that derives from reine, the French word for queen, and ultimately from the Latin word regina of the same meaning. A rarer alternative to Regina, which is also used as a given name, Reine is an elegant choice for any little royal! In Scandinavia, Reine is more commonly given to boys, and is usually a shortened form of names starting with Rein or Ragn. These have their roots in the ancient Germanic element ragina, meaning “counsel.” With the potential to mean both “regal” and “wise,” this name is a winner either way.
