Born in France? (3)
I believe the answer is:
'born in france?' is the definition.
('born' in French - 'originally named' in English)
This is all the clue.
(Other definitions for nee that I've seen before include "It indicates a married woman's single name" , "Indicating the birth name of a married woman" , "Adjective meaning born, followed by maiden name" , "called before wedding?" , "Prefix indicating maiden name before marriage" .)
