Where does naissance come from?
The first records of the term naissance come from around the 1480s. It ultimately comes from the Latin naïtre, meaning “to be born.”
Naissance is related to the more common renaissance, meaning “rebirth” or “revival.” Renaissance is used to describe the time from the 1300s through 1600s when much of Europe was rediscovering ancient Greek and Roman cultures, especially their arts and knowledge. The period was essentially a second naissance for those ancient cultures, often referred to as the classical period. If something is said to have a renaissance, at one point it had to have a naissance.

It's probably a bit dated, but according to O'Shea, the real naissance of the Renaissance occurred in Northern Spain as Moorish, Jewish, and Christian scholars came together to rediscover the works of the Classical Era. It's a good read.
