René (born again or reborn in French) is a common first name in French-speaking countries. It derives from the Latin name Renatus. René is originally only a masculine name (Renée being the feminine form). But in non-Francophone countries, there exists the habit of giving the name René (sometimes spelled without an accent) to girls. In addition, both forms are used as surnames (family names), probably as a patronymic.
