Reply to: Ranieri surname origin by FR

Since Ranieri comes from Germanic Raginhari, as you say you know, it is simply a given name that became a family name as so many others did. Cognates exist in various other European languages including English Rayner, French Ré(g)nier, German and Dutch Reiner.
