Pearl, a young travler, encountered a gnome on one of her journeys. So taken was she by his adorable appearance that she could not resist cuddling him as one would a doll, much to his discomfort. "From whence did you come, little one?" Pearl asked him, yet the gnome could only shrug his shoulders. It appeared he was lost. "Then I shall help you find your way home," the girl said cheerfully, her embrace still firm.

Pearl is an English and Irish feminine name. The first name is derived from the English jewel name "pearl", which is itself of the Old French perle and ultimately from the Latin root word perla. It was coined in the 19th century amidst the vogue for jewel names. It may also have been inspired by the name Margaret of Greek origin, which means "pearl".
A gnome is a diminutive spirit in Renaissance magic and alchemy, first introduced by Paracelsus in the 16th century and later adopted by more recent authors including those of modern fantasy literature. Its characteristics have been reinterpreted to suit the needs of various story tellers, but it is typically said to be a small, humanoid creature that lives underground. The word comes from Renaissance Latin gnomus, perhaps derived from Latin gēnomos, itself representing a Greek γη-νομος, literally "earth-dweller".
