Remi is a gender-neutral name with a variety of origins and meanings for your little one to enjoy. Coming from the French Rémy, this name acts as a short, sweet version of the Latin name Remigius, meaning "oarsman" or "rower." This will certainly add extra meaning any time you sing the lullaby "Row Your Boat" to your precious baby Remi. Remi may also come from the Yoruban name Oluremi, meaning "God comforts me," and can be a lovely way to share your faith with baby. In the Celtic Ghaulish language, Remi can also mean "the dominant ones" or "the first," referring to the tribe that used to settle in modern-day France. For a more celestial tone, Remi can also mean "heaven's pupil" in Japanese or connect baby to Remi the Weeper, the Egyptian fish god who fertilized the land with his tears. No matter where baby's path takes them, Remi will without a doubt make for great inspiration.
