Perry in French (Norman Conqueror) is a certain place name, "stone breaker", or "stony place". In Anglo-Saxon, it means a drink made from pears or a "pear orchard". In Welsh, it means "Son of Harry" from a distorted version of Ap Harry (The name Parry is also from this origin). The Normans had the name Pery and the name Perrie was Scottish.
