Name Meaning

1 English: from a Middle English personal name which took various forms: e.g. Perot, Parot, Paret, all pet forms of Peter . The word parrot, denoting the talking bird, is most probably from the personal name (compare robin, which is from a diminutive of Robert ; also jackdaw and magpie). The bird name is most unlikely to be the source of the surname.2 English: possibly a habitational name from North and South Perrott in Somerset, which are named for the river Parret, on which they stand.
