An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The surname Rine 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 Rine was first found in Switzerland
, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as they emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal
System and the nation.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Rhine, Rheina, Rhyne, Rhyn, Rheine, Rein, Ryne, Rine, Reno and many more.
