Pasquale Name Meaning
Italian: from the personal name Pasquale (Latin Paschalis, from pascha ‘Easter’, via Greek and Aramaic from Hebrew pesach ‘Passover’). This was popular as a given name throughout Christian Europe in the Middle Ages, mainly in honor of the festival of Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection, but also in honor of a 9th-century pope and saint who bore the name.
