Name Meaning

French:1. from a learned variant of Old French pareis ‘Paradise’, Greek paradeisos ( see Paradise ). As a toponym this was applied to verdant places, and it is quite common as a place name in Nord and Normandy; the surname, therefore, can be a topographic or habitational name. 2. topographic name from Old French parvis ‘square in front of a church’.
