Last Name Shortened upon migration to USA

Classification: Query
Surnames: Parr
I and my family have been trying to find the Greek derivative of our last name before it was shortened when my Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother came to the USA in or around 1914 with my grandfather. Our last name was shortened to Parr but no one in my family seems to know what the full Greek name was or its spelling before it was shortened. This information is critical to our ability to look up birth/marriage/death records for our ancestors that may still be in Greece. If anyone can help, or might have a clue what our name could have been before it was shortened, please let me know!! Many Thanks!! Donna
