Comments for RÉMI:

It was the name of the protagonist, a charming young orphan who travels France with a musician, a monkey and three dogs in the French novel, "Sans Famille." It was my favourite book as a child. I've always loved the name and want to use it for my first son.

This can be a pet form of Remington.

This may be a diminutive of the name Remigius, of Saint Remigius fame.

I LOVE this name. Not the 'American' girl's name Remy (I heard of Americans naming their daughter Remy with y), but the French boy's name Rémi. Some might say that it sounds 'childish' because it ends with 'ee', but Rémi sounds very strong and masculine to me. Rémi is not 'trendy' or anything either, it's a classic French name that has been used for ages, the fact that it was used in the 1878 novel 'Sans Famille' just proves it. The only problem is that I do not like the English pronunciation of the name. And I don't live in France, so I probably wouldn't name my son Rémi even though I love the name.

This is my cat's name! But I would definitely not name a person this, it sounds ridiculous and childish.

Oh, by the way, I pronounce my cat's name REM-ee. I personally thought that's how it was pronounced, but I have to admit I like it a lot more than the French pronunciation ;)

The name Remi was actually given to 242 baby girls and 66 baby boys born in the US in 2012. In my opinion, it's a bit too nickname-y and wayyy to masculine for a girl.
