Reply to: Re: Noel/René as a female name? by Rene
Rene was ranked among the top 1000 U.S. girls' names from 1944 to 1988, mirroring the peak period of Renee's popularity. To most Americans, it would have been considered merely a spelling variant of a female name, not a usage of a male name for girls.

Ditto for Noel/Noelle. Both spellings are common for girls. Noel is especially frequent as a girls' middle name.
