Caminito del Rey

Origin: Spanish

Meaning: “king” from Latin rex, regis. It could also be a form of Reynard, from Germanic Raginhard composed of elements ragin “advice” and hard “brave, hardy”

Interestingly enough, Renard is the French word for fox, based on the medieval fables of Reynard the fox, an anthropomorphic red fox who was a trickster and often deceived or played tricks on other animals.

Rey also comes from Old English roege meaning “female roe deer”, which referred to someone of a nervous temperament.
