Meaning:Pierce the vale
Perce means “rock” and is a variation of the English name Percy. It means “pierce the vale” and is also a form of the name Percival. The name was made famous by the Arthurian legend of Sir Percival, one of the Knights of the Round Table. In the legend, Percival is a brave and virtuous knight who eventually finds the Holy Grail and brings it back to King Arthur’s court. Perce is still used as a first name today, although it is less common than some other variants, like Percy or Pierce. With this knightly name, little Perce can be inspired to act with courage and perseverance.
