This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Periklês (Περῐκλῆς)”, composed of two elements: “perí (περί)” (about, concerning, near) plus “kléos (κλέος)” (rumour, report, good report, fame, glory). In turn the name means “around the glory, surrounded by glory, very famous”. Pericles was a prominent and influential Greek statesman, orator, and general of Athens during the city's Golden Age, specifically, the time between the Persian and Peloponnesian wars.
