Parrilla Name Meaning

Spanish: from a diminutive of Parra; probably a habitational name from one of the places in southern Spain called Parrilla. Italian (Calabria): from the feminine form of Parrillo or from parrilla ‘titmouse’, ‘long-tailed tit’ (a small bird), hence a nickname, perhaps for a small, lively, talkative person, though Fucilla refers to a Calabrian idiom, ‘the titmouse has sung to him’, indicating a person who has become rich.
