I don't know for certain, but it seems likely that Rienette would be an elaboration of Reina or a feminization of Rien.

In addition to what this site says, I've found that rien is French, meaning "nothing", but it seems unlikely that someone would knowingly select this as a name.

Also, according to Think Baby Names, the boy's name Rien \rien\ is a variant of Marino (Latin) and Ryan (Gaelic), and the meaning of Rien is "of the sea; king".
