Pasquale is a masculine Italian given name and a surname mainly found in southern Italy. It is a cognate of the French name Pascal, the Spanish Pascual, the Portuguese Pascoal and the Catalan Pasqual. Pasquale 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 פֶּסַח, which means "to be born on, or to be associated with, Passover day". Since the Hebrew 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, Pascal, Pascale, Pascha, Paschalis, Pascual, Pascoe and Pasco are all variations of Pasquale. The feminine form, rather rare, is Pasquala, Pasqualina, Pascale, Pascalle or Pascalina. As a surname in Italy, Pasquale has many variations found all over the country: Pasquali, Pascale, Pascal, Pascali, Pascalis, De Pascalis, Pasqual, De Pasqual, De Pascal, De Pasquali, Di Pasquale, DiPasquale, Di Pascali, Di Pasquali, De Pasquale, De Pasqualin, De Pasqualis, Pasqualin, Pasqualini, Pasqualino, Pasqualon, Pasqualotto, Pasqualigo, Pasqualetti.
