Derived from Italian paratore meaning "decorator, fuller", which refers to a craftsman who fulls coarse cloth. In other words: this surname is the Italian cognate of the English surname FULLER. The Italian name for the occupation is ultimately derived from Latin parator "preparer", which comes from the Latin verb paro meaning "to prepare, to make ready" as well as "to furnish, to design".A known bearer of this surname is the Italian professional golfer Renato Paratore (b. 1996).
