Name Root:
(phicell galed) (Peredur) Percevaus / Perceval
Percival or Perceval is one of King Arthur’s legendary Knights of the Round Table. It was created by the French poet Chrétien de Troyes for his work “Perceval or the tale of the Grail,” written in the 12th-century. The character and his name were based on the hero of Welsh mythology “Peredur,” whose name was perhaps influenced by the French phrase “percer val” (pierce in the valley). The original meaning of “Peredur” may have been “hard spears,” even if “hard spears” in Welsh is translated “phicell galed,” which resembles more Percival than Peredur. Peredur is a series of semi-legendary figures from Britain in the dark ages.
