Peregrine is the English form of Late Latin Peregrinus which means “traveler, foreigner” from Latin peregrē (foreign, abroad) made up from Latin per (through, by means of) deriving from Proto-Indo-European *per- (to go over); and ager (field, farm) also derived from Proto-Indo-European *h₂éǵros (field, pasturage). Peregrine is also a surname usually given to those who went on a pilgrimage so it also connotes the idea of a “pilgrim”. It’s also the name of the peregrine falcon which got its name because they were captured during their migration.
