French (Larrivée): variant of Larrivé, itself a variant, with fused definite article l', of Arrivé, from Old French arivé, past participle of ariver ‘to arrive (at a destination)’, originally ‘to reach the bank of a river’ (from Old French rive ‘bank of a river’), hence possibly a nickname denoting a newcomer to a community. In North America, this surname is also an altered form of both Larrivé and Arrivé. The original ending -é was probably changed under the influence of the French word arrivée ‘arrival’. Compare Larabee 2, Larivee , and Larrabee 2.
