This was the name of Ren McCormack, Kevin Bacon's character in the movie Footloose. (Note: in this instance, "Ren" was a male name.)

In Confucianism, Ren is the summation of human virtues; it's the inner cultivation of conscience and character. The Analects is the earliest Chinese text that stresses the concept of Ren, which has been translated as “benevolence,” “humaneness,” or simply “goodness.”

In 2002 Ren ranked number 4 for BOYS in Japan. It is not uncommon there.

Hehe, this name doesn't suit the Ren from "Ren and Stimpy". It can also be short for Renee.

Ren is also used as a male short form of Warren.

Must be a more recent trend if it's way up there for boys because I never met any just plain "Ren"s in Japan of either gender. Though there was a Karen, which is pretty rare in Japanese.

This is the name of the pessimisstic Chiwawa in "The Ren and Stimpy Show" and "The Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon".

Ren is the Japanese name of Len from the anime Shaman King. This is because, in some cases, the letters R and L are interchangable in Japanese.

In the United States, I've seen this name used as a short form of the name Lauren.

The name Ren is also used by the main female character in the Japanese Manga DearS. It is an abbreviation of her true name, which is Ren Ren Ren Nagusaran Rensia Roroonren Nakora. In the DearS language, Ren means "zero" or "nothing". She is very beautiful and sweet, so I like it very much.

It's already been said, but the first person I think of when I hear the name "Ren" is Ren McCormick from the famous Broadway play and movie "Footloose."

(Exchange from Broadway Play, during song "On Any Sunday", between Ren and Rev. Moore)

"This morning we welcome to our parish two new souls, just arrived from Chicago! Ethel McCormick, and her son. Ron is it?"

(mumbled) "Ren."

"Hm? Speak up, let the Lord hear your voice!"

"Ren! Ren McCormick."

"Ren, interesting name. Is it short for something?"

(curtly) "No."

I know someone called Renn but (as you can see) she spells it with two 'N's.

Very nice. It can also be a pet form of Karen.

Can be a nickname for Renata.

Ren is the name of one of Ai's assistants in the anime, manga, and Japanese TV drama Hell Girl. He is so awesome. =D
-- MisquotedWarrior  9/7/2008
Kind of ironic how Ren the Chihuahua in Ren and Stimpy is everything but loving.

But I think this is a nice name, not too short and simple to the point of boredom. And of course I love flowers or anything flowery.

Ren can also be used as a short form of Lawrence.
