Perhael 'half-wise, simple' is Sindarin for Samwise and is used in the below quote from The Return of the King:

Daur a Berhael, Conin en Annûn, eglerio!
Frodo and Sam, princes of the west, glorify (them)!

Here the name is in form Berhael due to the soft lenition which changes p > b after the particle a closely connected to the name (see, e.g. Letters, p. 279, footnote [Letter 211]).

The name also appears in the King's Letter (Sauron Defeated, p. 129 cf. p. 126):

Cherdir Perhael (i sennui Panthael estathar aen)
Master Samwise (who should be called Fullwise)
