Rantum is a village and a former municipality on the island of Sylt in the district of Nordfriesland, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Since 1 January 2009, it has been an Ortsteil of the municipality Sylt.
It is, however, more likely that the name derives from the old spelling of Raantem, i.e. "settlement at the edge".
