Reese is a name which can suit both a boy and a girl. The name is a variant of the name "Reece." Reese or Reece are an anglicized form of the popular name "Rhys," which means "enthusiasm" in the Welsh language. Many Welsh rulers were bearers of the name "Rhys."

Reese ranked 406 in the top 1000 popular names for males in the US, for the year 2005. For the women in the same year, the name ranked 237. Reese is a popular surname but fares poorly as a first name. Two of the famous bearers of this name are actress Reese Witherspoon, who starred in the movie "Legally Blonde," and Della Reese, the vocal music artiste. Name analysts believe people with the name Reese to be articulate and imaginative.
