Pertuit Name Meaning
French: of uncertain origin. It may be an altered form of Pertuis, a topographic name from Late Latin pertusium ‘hole’, ‘tunnel’. Alternatively, it may be an altered form of Perduit, which according to Morlet is an occupational name for a guide, from the past participle of Occitan perduire ‘to lead through’, Late Latin perducere.
