Rin is a really cute name, I like its sound! It's simple and short but it's beautiful. I love a character named Rin Yamazaki, from Mermaid Swamp.

I'm currently writing a book of the Snow Queen's daughter, "The Snow Princess". Despite the usage in most anime and manga, I took this meaning and made it the name of the Snow Queen.

Rin is also the name of a character from the anime 'Free!' (At least, I think that's the name of the anime... It's a swimming anime).

In the names Rin and Len (from Vocaloid), the names are a pun on right and left and were probably somewhat derived from English.

Two bearers I just thought of. Rin Suzune from senran kagura and Rin Tosaka from fate/stay night.

REEN sounds too snotty and it just hurts my ears. That's why I prefer pronouncing it RIN.

People always give the bad meaning of this name, and it's not okay. "Rin" also has lovely meanings.

If you write it " 鈴 " it means "bell". And if you write it like I write my name: " 琳 " it means "Jewel".

See? It doesn't have to be such a depressing name!

The character Rin from Shinbokuji Youmonogatari ruined this name in my opinion.

I like how it could be a nickname for Kathryn and thereby have two meanings.

I love the name Rin because it's simple, beautiful, and for the meaning behind it. There are not enough names in this world that have negative meanings. I looked all over the place for a feminine name that meant evil, but Rin was as close as I could get.

林 can also be pronounced Rin, and means woods or forest. However, as far as I can discern, it is usually pronounced hayashi in surnames.

Rin doesn't simply mean "cold, severe". Rinretsu 凛冽 for example means "cold" (and really freezing, ice cold), but Rin 凛 or ririshii 凛々しい can also mean "dignified, gallant, courageous, handsome etc". [noted -ed]

The pronunciation is very close to "Lynn".

Since so many people are mentioning Rin from Inuyasha, it's important to note two things: first of all, the actual name is pronounced "reen", while in most dubbed versions of Inuyasha they pronounce the name "ren" (like the name Ren). Secondly, in Inuyasha Rin's name is spelled with hirigana -‚è‚ñ- so it doesn't mean "cold", it actually has no meaning.

I didn't know it could mean "cold". I was more thinking of "bell". The kanji for "wood" can also be pronounced Rin, but I don't know if it is used for names.

I think its a nice a name. Though the meaning doesn't suit the people who have this name in many anime. Like Rin from Naruto, her name doens't really fit with the meaning 'Cold.' Another example is Rin from Inuyasha, she is cheerful and doesn't fit with 'Cold.'

Rin is the nickname of a character in the manga, "Fruits Basket." Rin's real name is Isuzu, which means "bell." She's nicknamed Rin because of the sound a bell makes (ring ring, get it?).

I don't think it's that common of a name though. Manga and anime are a poor reflection of reality.

Rin was a little girl that stood by Inuyasha's evil brother Sesshomaru, although she is a kind and warm-hearted little girl in the manga/anime series 'Inuyasha'.
