Renseneb (transliteration: rn-snb, meaning: "Healthy of Name") was an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh of the Thirteenth Dynasty. His throne name thus far remains unknown.

He appears in the Turin King List (Columne 7, line 16) with a reign of four month. He is only known from one contemporary object, a bead which shows that he had a double name – The bead reads "Ranisonb Amenemhat, who gives life".[1] Kim Ryholt reads the double name as filiation: Renseneb son of Amenemhat.[2] However, other researcher do not follow him in this interpretation.[3]
