The first name 

Renie is a first name typically given to girls, but in rare cases also used as a boys name.

Renie – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Renie has been given only a handful of times a year and is therefore particularly rare, at least in the US. In recent years, not even one girl in 100,000 has been named Renie. That means that a girl named Renie is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her whole life. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Renie.

You won't believe all there is

Renie -
at home in California and Michigan

Meeting a woman or girl named Renie is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Renie can be found in only two: California and Michigan. No other state currently has residents named Renie. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Renie living in one state or another (if your name is Renie and you live outside of California or Michigan, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further). Either way, the name is quite rare. The best chance of meeting a Renie is in Michigan, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Michigan, only 0.00010% of all female residents are named Renie – that’s just one in 956,607! And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 11 women with that name. So, if your name is Renie, chances are you will never meet another woman with your beautiful first name.

Renie has 5 letters 
and begins with an R

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter R is neither particularly common nor particularly rare as a first letter for girls' names: 4.1% of all common girls' names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of girls' names are A and S, while X and U are the least common initials of girls' names.

With five letters, the name Renie is comparatively short. In fact, 17.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly five letters. Only 7% of all first names are even shorter, while 75% have more than five letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.

Thus, it follows that if 4.1% of all girls' names start with an R, this initial letter occurs about as often as all 26 letters on average. And maybe interesting to know: Rebecca is the girls’ name starting with R, which is the most common of all.

Other names with 
R, e, n, i and e

If you take all the letters in the name Renie – R, e, n, i and e – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Reine or others.
