Pecoraro is an Italian family name, derived from Latin pecurarius, "shepherd", from pecoris, "flock", a derivation of pecus [1], "sheep". It is a cognate of the standard Italian word for shepherd "pecoraio" [2], as well as, a Romanian word for shepherd "păcurar" [3].

There is the possibility this name was also derived from a locality, that of Pecorara, in the Province of Piacenza, Italy.
