An Albanian given name; derived from Greek "Pyrrhos" (Latinized as "Pyrrhus") (flame-coloured, red-haired).

As an Italian name, it is derived either from the aforementioned Greek name or from a variant of the name "Pierro" (from Peter).

Pirro or DiPirro originates from the name "di Pirro" or "DiPirro" meaning "of Pirro" or "family of Pirro".

Pirro comes from the historical figure of Pyrrhus of Epirus (319/318 BC – 272 BC).

The Pirro family originated in ancient Greece and "Great Greece" or Magna Graecia, the name of the coastal areas of Southern Italy on the Tarentine Gulf that were extensively colonized by Greek settlers.
