Requiem is a girl's name of Jamaican and English origin. Stemming from the word requiem, it means "rest" or "repose." A requiem mass is a religious service to celebrate and remember someone who has passed away. With this in mind, Requiem makes a suitable choice for those wishing to celebrate their faith or honor a loved one from a previous generation. Requiem also has a place in popular culture, thanks to the American psychological drama film Requiem for a Dream.
