PARR is actually a real surname, although very unlikely yours.

Catherine PARR, was the Queen Consort of England, The last (6th) wife of Henry VIII, King of England. married 1543.

Your name is probably from Paraskevopoulos. Paraskevopoulos has been shortened to Paras or Parras.
I think yours is Parras with the -as lost in the translation or a cyclone.
