Pilar is a Spanish name for a Goan village. The monastery got its name from the village.

Pilar got its name from the patroness of the monastery - Our Lady of Pilar, a devotion that began in Zaragoza, Spain. According to a very ancient tradition, Mother Mary was carried to Zaragoza on a pillar by the angels to meet St.James. After the meeting, Mother Mary left the pillar as a symbol of strength to St James.
