Renly Origin and Meaning

The name Renly is a boy's name .

Renly Baratheon was a fairly minor character in A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's Game of Thrones, mostly remembered as the one of the show's few prominent LGBT characters. He played a major part in season 2 of the show, when he challenged the Lannisters and his older brother Stannis for control of the Iron Throne.

Despite the relative insignificance of the character, Renly has actually started to gain a bit of traction as a boys' name, thanks to its fresh, upbeat sound. A respectable 29 baby boys were named Renly in 2016 -- up from ZERO before the show premiered.
