"Rene is a french name that means born again, it comes from the french verb naitre or born in english, and its past participle is NE, so if it was in english it would be re-born or born again or in french RENE
In french all words applicable to the feminine gendre end with an e, that is why to make Rene a ladies name you have to add an e to the word Rene, becoming this way RENEE

"I often tell people my name is Ray since it avoids confusion. Although I think it would be fun to be married to a gal named Renee and really drive everyone nuts." Jul. 29, 2009:
"My husband's name is Rene and he hates it. He has adopted another nickname. Very few people know his real name. A lot of people write it as a girl name Renee. When strangers call him on the phone they call him Renee and to make things worse my husband has the kind of voice that is hard to tell on the phone if he is a man or a woman, so the person on the other line ends up addressing him as a "ma'am". It drives him nuts. I am not too crazy about his name either. We all call him by his nick name." Apr. 14, 2009:

"My name is Rene and I love the name. However, everyone spells it with Renee. I do understand this because I am a female & have the Male spelling (I LOVE IT) Also, people will put an apostrophe at the end of my name when it should have a accent over the 2nd e. This is done by doing the follow (Ctrl/')hold down at same time & let go, the hit the (e). this will put the apostrophe over the e. For some reason will NOT work in this box,but guarantee it will work in any WORD document." Jan. 17, 2013:
