Reynaud is a boy’s given name and surname of German and French origin.

Therefore, it can be interpreted to mean “powerful counsel” or “counsel of the king.” The name was Latinized as Reginaldus, and translates to Reynaud or Renaud in French. A historic bearer of this name was Reynaud of Châtillon, a French knight. If you’re looking for an unusual name with a long and interesting history, Reynaud could be the perfect choice.
