Gender: M Meaning of Paolo: "small" Origin of Paolo: Italian, variation of Paul

Paolo is an irresistibly lush name, worlds more romantic than its spare English equivalent.

Among noted bearers of the name are Renaissance painters Uccello and Veronese, architect Soleri, and whole teams of Italian soccer players — or so it seems.

Another possibility is the Spanish version of Paul: Pablo, as in Picasso and Casals.
