Origin and Meaning

Spanish name from a title of the Virgin Mary, Nuestra Señora del Pilar 'Our Lady of the Pillar'. In AD 40 the Virgin appeared, standing on a pillar, to St James the Greater at Saragossa.

The Spanish word pilar (masculine!) derives, via Medieval Latin pilare, from Latin pila = 'pillar', 'stone barrier' [1] [2]
