Rebel Origin and Meaning

The name Rebel is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "rebel".
Asking for trouble. Rebel Wilson is female, but this name is truly gender neutral, though hardly neutral in any other way. Rebel is undoubtedly one of the edgiest boys' names starting with the letter R.

American filmmaker Robert Rodriguez gave the name Rebel to one of his four sons (a brother to Rocket, Racer, Rogue, and daughter Rhiannon).
