This is my name, and I love it. My mum is French, but generally I use the German pronunciation of Rainer just to make it easier. But as a francophone, it is a beautiful uncommon name especially in English said the French way.

An alternative spelling is Renier, pronounced, REN-nee-ay in French and REN-neer in English. My understanding is that it's a variation on "Renée".

Although this is a beautiful name, it reminds me of the weather that is more rainy than rainy. However, as it's pronounced differently than said weather, I have mixed feelings.
