Rene is the English form of the French René—a gender-neutral name that celebrates change and reinvention. Rene comes from the Latin name 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.
