During the Middle Ages, Italians adopted the patronymic system of surname creation, as it complemented the prevailing Feudal System. In Italy the popularity of patronymic type of surname is also due to the fact that during the Christian era, people often named their children after saints and biblical figures. The surname Pitrello came ultimately from the personal name Pietro, or Peter, which is itself derived from the Greek word "petrus" meaning "rock."
