Other Origin(s):French
Meaning:Protection, shelter
Garrin is a worldly surname that has traveled the globe, yet its elusive origins are tricky to trace. This handsome masculine title is making waves as a personal name and is a respelling of Garin. Garin may come from the French place name Gueron, which borrows from Guarinus, a Germanic name from wari, meaning “protection” and “shelter.” Garrin’s double-r lengthens the name ever so slightly for an appellation that looks as pleasant written down as it sounds on the ear.
