Meaning & History

There are three possible origins of this surname. It could derive from some place names located in Catania and Campania -two Italian southern regions. Another hypothesis is that it derives from the Celtic word borro, meaning "proud" or maybe "ditch". Borrelli is very common in Campania, but bearers of this surname can be found across Italy and Europe.
