The surname Reinken 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.
