Cercamon (fl. 2nd quarter of the 12th century) was a troubadour who was apparently from Gascony. He appears to have had William X of Aquitaine (son of Guilem de Peitieu) as a patron. He is said to have got his name due to his extensive travels. He is also mentioned in a vida as the man who inspired Marcabru to write songs.

Although his vida says that Cercamon composed pastorela poems, none of these survive.
