I know it is Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore's name, but there is another character who's FIRST name is Percival - that darned Percy Weasley. At least, that's what many fan sites say.

Percy Weasley's FULL first name is listed as Percy, NOT Percival, whereas in the same chapter Dumbledore's middle name is revealed Percival. Percy is often used as a nickname for Percival, but it is ALSO a totally independent English name, derived from the Percy surname.

In William Golding's Lord of the Flies, a very small little'un is named Percival. He recites his (very long) name and address constantly, but by the end, when the ship comes, all he can remember is his first name, Percival.

This is one of my favourite names. I don't think it sounds weak or stuffy.

There was a cartoon character from the '30s (I think) called "Percival Prissyfeather," at least by the host (Fred Sayles) of a '50's children's program called "Junior Frolics." (I don't think that was the character's original name, if he had one.) He was a tall, effeminate bird who sang "Listen to the Mockingbird."
