Carrillo Name Meaning

Spanish: nickname for a person with some peculiarity of the cheek or jaw, Spanish carrillo. The word is attested since the 13th century, but its origin is uncertain.

The surname may also have denoted originally a bold or shameless person; for the semantic development compare Cheek.
