Pascale is a common Francophone given name, feminine form of the name Pascal, and an Italian masculine given name, ancient form of Pasquale (Paschale). Pascale is also a surname found in Italy.

Pascale derives from the Latin paschalis or pashalis, which means "relating to Easter", from Latin pascha ("Easter"), Greek Πάσχα, Aramaic pasḥā, in turn from the Hebrew pesach, which is the name of the festival of Passover. Since the Jewish holiday Passover coincides closely with the later Christian holiday of Easter, the Latin word came to be used for both occasions.

The names Paschal, Pasqual, Pasquale, Pascal, Pascha, Pascual, Pascoe and Pasco are all masculine variations of feminine Pascale.
