Pearse name meaning:

The name Pearse is of English origin, emanating from a surname that has been adapted into a given name. Traditionally, it is a variant of the name Pierce or Piers, which itself is derived from the name Peter. The meaning of Peter, and thus Pearse by extension, is "rock" or "stone." This association conveys a sense of solidity, reliability, and strength, qualities that are often admired and desired in a person's character.

Over time, Pearse has become a distinctive first name choice for boys, appreciated for its uniqueness and strong phonetic presence. It carries with it a sense of heritage and a nod to historical figures, perhaps most notably the Irish nationalist and educator Patrick Henry Pearse, who is often celebrated for his role in the Easter Rising of 1916. The name thus encapsulates both a sense of steadfastness, drawn from its original meaning, and a spirit of independence and leadership, inspired by its notable bearers.
