Reply to: Meaning of name "Murilo"? by Y.H. Jeong
It is of ancient Greek origin, from the word "MYRRA", the myrtle tree. (In Greek lower case writing: "Murra"). It is actually the masculine form of the feminine "Murilla" and it means "of the myrtle tree".

"Murillos" was an epithet of Democopos, a famous ancient Greek architect. (Thesaurus of ancient Greek names, ISBN 96-7931-65-3)

LGPN covers three "Murillas". ( http://www.lgpn.ox.ac.uk)
