Other Origin(s):Norse
Meaning:Deciding warrior
Renier is a boy’s name of Old Norse and Old German origin. It derives from the Old Norse name Ragnar, which combines the elements ragina (counsel or judgement) and hari (army.) Because of this, the name is now said to mean “deciding warrior” or “warrior counsel.” The Old German variant of this name is Rainer or Rainier, famously borne by Prince Rainier of Monaco and the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. Renier is a less common version of this already rare name, making it a great option if you’re looking for something unusual for baby. It’s also a surname, found most often in France and Belgium.
