Reply:Mmm, well, I really don't know what it means, but the suffix "illo" is generally used to make something small, but more frequently it is also used to add a tender feeling to something. For example, "chiquillo" comes from the combination of "chico"(kid) and "illo", and this word has like a sweet feeling to it.
