translation for l'épine/Lépine

This dit name Lépine (l'épine) (in French) translates to 'the thorn or thorn-bush'. L'épinettière means a grove or forest of tamarack, spruce or fir trees. He perhaps had a grove of trees or he was a thorn in people's sides.
Right now my Pierre Chevaudiere-dit-Lépine is a thorn in my side.
I had him born 1 Mar 1702 and married to Marie Maguet on 8 Feb 1740 at Riviere des Prairies. Now I found this Pierre died 21 Jul 1703 as far as Jette and Tanguay claim. Was there a second Pierre in this family, that does not show up in Jette or Tanguay? Their daughter would be Catherine married to Joseph Chalifour on 21 Jan 1765 at Riviere des Prairies, if my information from the WEB is right. Thanks, Janet
