Meaning:rock
Perrin, meaning "rock," is every bit as cool as a boy's name, as it is as a girl's name. This gender-neutral name is related to the English name Perkin and was traditionally seen as the feminine form of Peter or Peregrine. Today, it acts as a modern-sounding alternative to these somewhat dated options. Just like a rock will stand up to and endure the strongest wave, so too will baby be able to weather all of life's storms with you by their side.
