For LAURICH check this:
Now REINEN could well be German. Rosa und Volker Kohlheim, Familiennamen, Mannheim 2000, has:
1. From REINO, a personal name going back to ragin/regin (like Reinhard, Reinold)
2. From German "rein" = "pure" (i.e. spotless, handsome, perfect, good, chaste)
3. Someone living by or coming from the river Rhine.
4. Someone living by a "Rain", i.e. a balk.
