Origins Available: English, French


The origins the old family name Pellerin can be found within medieval France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Pellerin family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Pellerin was an occupational name for a falconer or cape maker which was in turn derived from the Old French word "pelerin," which indicated someone of either of these two professions.
