Gender: M Meaning of Rainer: "wise army" Origin of Rainer: German

Rainer is one of those baby names that is completely obscure -- only 19 boys received the name in the U.S. in 2011 -- yet easy to understand and an intriguing possibility. Part nature name and part tradtional Teutonic choice, Rainer can claim a place among the two-syllable r-ending baby names so fashionable for boys today.
