Are you talking about an apostrophe, or an accent over a certain letter? In Hawaii, (or Hawai'i) there is an apostrophe to indicate a pause in your voice. Hard to explain in typing if you can't hear it. I don't think it necessarily applies to English or American names except for style or trend. Renee sometimes has an accent over one of the e's. I don't know why. Good luck with your new baby!

French names often have accents. renee for example has an accent over the second 'e' to make it sound like the english 'a'. or 'eh' if that makes sense. :)
