Taken from the surname Renfrew, which is the Anglicized form of the Gaelic Rinn Friù, meaning "cradle of the Royal Stewards." It may also be inspired by the English phrase "run free."In the book series The Witcher, as well as the television adaptation, Renfri is an exiled princess who was born during a solar eclipse, and thus allegedly filled a prophecy along with many other girls who would bring about the end of the world. Because of this she was pursued by the obsessed sorcerer Stregobor and vilified by her stepmother, who sent thugs to kill her in the forest. Eventually she became the leader of a band of thieves and vowed vengeance on Stregobor, and Geralt of Rivia attempted to persuade her to abandon this quest.
