The prominent surname Perine originated in France, a country which has been a dominant presence in world affairs for centuries.The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name.The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common French surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin.They derive from the language of the Visigoths, who controlled France between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. The name Perine is derived, from the French name Pierre, meaning rock.
