The surname Rein is a local name, derived from the Rhine River. The Rhine starts in Basel, Switzerland, and bends north through the German countryside until it reaches the North Sea, passing through the cities of Freiburg, Frankfurt, Bonn, and Cologne. Local names are based upon the place where the original bearer lived or held land.

The surname Rein was first found in Switzerland, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times.
