When I rescued "Terence" from our local shelter back on 10/19/12, I certainly wasn't going to call him Terence! So I renamed him "Renny".
At the time I didn't even know if "Renny" was a real name. So I looked it up, and sure enough this is what I found on one site: Irish Meaning:
The name Renny is an Irish baby name
. In Irish the meaning of the name Renny is: Mighty. Latin Meaning:
The name Renny is a Latin baby name
. In Latin the meaning of the name Renny is: To rise again. French Meaning:
The name Renny is a French baby name
. In French the meaning of the name Renny is: To rise again. SoulUrge Number: 5
People with this name have a deep inner desire for travel and adventure, and want to set their own pace in life without being governed by tradition. Expression Number: 4
People with this name tend to be orderly and dedicated to building their lives on a solid foundation of order and service. They value truth, justice, and discipline, and may be quick-tempered with those who do not. Their practical nature makes them good at managing and saving money, and at building things in the material world. Because of their focus on order and practicality, they may seem overly cautious and conservative at times.
I love how his name means "To rise again" since I rescued him.
Renny certainly is "mighty"! He's quite strong, enjoys riding in the car and going on "adventures"! Not sure yet about how "orderly" or "disciplined" or "frugal" he is, but I guess I'll find out in time!
