Renae is a girl's name of French origin, offering a refreshing twist to a long-established title. A variation of Renée, Renae also means "reborn," and finds its roots in the Latin name Renatus, meaning "born again." Deeply spiritual in nature, Renatus was greatly associated with baptism and the practice of transforming through blessed waters. In the spirit of its transformative heritage, the name embraces many forms, including the masculine Rene. And while the sound may inspire images of many a great starlet, Renae's distinctive look is sure to encourage baby to embrace reinvention at every stage of their unique path.
