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 Perrion is derived, from the French name Pierre, meaning rock.
