The Petroff surname comes from the Russian version of the given name Peter. The name was probably first derived from the Greek "petros," meaning "rock." This name was extremely popular throughout Christian Europe, due to St. Peter. Petroff, or any variants of this name ending in "ov/ev" were Patronymic surnames, meaning "son of Peter," created by adding the suffix to the personal name.
