    Rav Maimon writes in the sixth volume of Sarei Hameiah that the name Reines comes from an ancestor whose (Yiddish) name was Reina, and her son was called “Reina’s”, as was common in those days when family names were not really used. Similarly, there was a noted Chasidic leader called Reb Leib Sarah’s, as his mother’s name was Sarah.
