something to quarrel about

Today's Spanish word of the Day from Transparent Language is "quarrel", which they translate as "reñir", a word I've never seen before. Both Google Translate and SpanishDict use the more familiar "pelea". What word is used most commonly in Mexico? And please - no quarreling. :lol:

Reñir can mean quarrel, and can also mean scold or "tell off."
