The surname Chaparro is most likely derived from the Spanish word "Chapa," which means "metal plate or sheet;" so the name may be occupational, originally born by someone who worked with metal sheets. Alternatively, this surname may be of toponymic origin, derived from the place name Chapa, in the Spanish province of Pontevedra (Galicia); or it may come from the Basque word "chaparro" (txaparro) meaning an "oak bush."
