Etymology[edit]

From Egyptian pr ˤ3(great house), originally referring to the palace of the Egyptian king, but later came to refer to the king himself, whence the Hebrew sense.

Use as a proper noun occurs many times in the Bible; use as a common noun appears to be much more recent, and is perhaps due to influence from European languages.
