Meaning & Origins

Mainly U.S.: transferred use of the surname, a variant of Stirling. As a given name, however, it is likely to have been chosen because of its association with the vocabulary word occurring in such phrases as ‘sterling qualities’ and ‘sterling worth’. This is derived from the Middle English word sterrling ‘little star’: some Norman coins had a little star on them. A 20th-century influence on the name was the American film actor Sterling Hayden (1916–86).
1,462nd in the U.S.
English (mainly southern): from the Old French habitational name and personal name Paris (see Paris 1). Parrish is the most common form of the name in English, and is the result of confusion between -s and -sh (compare Norris), reinforced by folk etymological association with the modern English word parish. In the 17th and 18th centuries the surname was occasionally bestowed on foundlings brought up at the expense of the parish.
