Parrott Family HistoryRecorded in many spellings as shown below, this is an English surname, but one which is usually of French origins. It has only a slight association with "birds" as described, and is usually regarded as being a diminutive of the 'modern' spelling of the given name of Peter. If so its origins lie in the Middle English name 'Perot', itself a derivation of the popular French name Pierre, introduced into the British Isles after the conquest of England by the Norman-French in 1066. In France Pierrot, meaning Little Peter, is the name given to a sparrow, as Robin is in England for the famous Redbreast.
