    I think that Paul has been ignored for long enough!

    Every European country seems to have a version of the handsome name Paul

    There is

    Paul
    Paolo
    Paule
    Pavel
    Pavlo
    Paulus
    Pol
    Paavo
    Pollock

    So is Paul in one form or another going to go on your list?

    I've always liked the name Paul, just never quite enough to use myself.

    Why yes, I probably should be working!

    @freya that is a good start - maybe people have just forgotten what a great name it is, and being one syllable will tick a lot of people's boxes.

    I actually love Paul. It's my grandfather's middle name, and I would probably use it as a middle name in his honor. Barnaby Paul or Barnaby Viggo Paul has occurred to me. I just don't like the possibility of "Paulie" as a nickname up front. Pollock I like, because of the artist, but I fear that some people would hear it as a slur against polish people, Polak (not sure on the spelling)? I do agree with you though, it's a nice name that doesn't get enough attention, in any of its forms.

    There's a lot of things I like about Paul--including it's namesakes. I like it's warmth, it has a sound like breathing on your cold hands to warm them on a frosty night.

    The thing that holds me back from really loving it is the round, soft sound combined with it's shortness--like ball or doll or haul. I prefer Saul for that reason, it just feels more distinctive.
