I am a huge Lord of the Rings fan, and Pippin is my favorite character. Peregrin is pronounced: Pair-a-grin, and Peregrine is pronounced either Pair-a-grin or Pair-a-green. I prefer the latter, and I like it better as a girl's name. Nicknames include: Pippin/Pip, Perry/i, Rin, or Percy.

I think this is my new favourite name! Both regal sounding and wild and a little quirky somehow. I think both of a pilgrim and a falcon. Unfortunately if I have a son, I can't name him that because no one in Sweden would be able to pronounce it correctly. Perhaps as a middle name, then.

A sort-of famous bearer of this name, more a prominent bearer of the name, is Peregrine Andrew Morny Cavendish, 12th Duke of Devonshire, KCVO, CBE (born 27 April 1944); he is a British peer. He is the only surviving son of the 11th Duke of Devonshire and his wife, the former Deborah Mitford. He succeeded to the dukedom following the death of his father on 3 May 2004. Prior to this succession, he was styled Marquess of Hartington. He is married to Amanda Cavendish, née Heywood-Lonsdale. They have three grown-up children and reside in the gloriously ornate and historical family residence at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, England. :-)

For some reason I really like this name for a girl, but not really for a boy. It seems strong and wild but more feminine. But I don't really know what a good nickname would be.

It's not all that bad, actually. It sounds mature, even if a bit old-fashioned, and you can always call the boy Perry.

I really adore this name! It is so regal sounding! And plus, Pippin is my hero from the Lord of the Rings!

As a once-devoted Animorphs fanatic, when I hear this name, I think of a bird, a falcon. I would never name a child after a bird. Or a hobbit, come to think of it.

I adore this name! It has such a beautiful meaning. I think Peregrine would be a nice name for both a boy or a girl; it's not too masculine or too feminine. Peregrine is a strong, mysterious, intriguing name. One thing I have wondered, though, is what pronunciation is more common - "Per-e-grin" or "Per-e-green." I personally like the former better.

Peregrine was Pippin the hobbit's real name in The Lord of The Rings.

I really think this name is weird because I had a friend whose name is Alma PEREGRINA, which in English is basically wandering soul.
