Rene is a gender-neutral French name that celebrates change and reinvention. Also appearing as René, the name comes from the Latin Renatus, which means "rebirth" or "born again." Though first formalized as a spiritual name embracing conversion, Rene has since left a lasting impression in the philosophical and surrealism worlds. From the "Father of Modern Philosophy" René Descartes to the famed Belgian artist René Magritt, baby will have plenty of inspiration to cultivate bold, creative thinking deserving of their name.
