With both our fathers named Peter, as well as my uncle and grandfather (and having used the grandmothers names for the first child) I think this might be a nice alternative to Peter for a female middle name as Petra is a bit *hard* sounding for me. I like that it also reminds me of Peregrine (the Bird, the pretty name and the Hobbit), and Perun (the god).

I know a beautiful girl from France named Perrine. She was very kind, creative, and fun to be around. Sort of like a "manic pixie dream girl."

I went to school with a Perrine. She was basically a bimbo with big boobs.

She bullied people that were "not pretty enough" and then asked them to be friends when they "turned out to look rather pretty" a few years later...

It's a cute name, but for me this name was totally ruined.

A brand of eye drops??? It sounds like a brand of cat food if anything. But it's pretty, made me think of periwinkle. 😉
