I have always loved Paul! I am happy to hear I am not alone. I went to school with a handsome guy from Brazil named Paulo (swoon!) That probably increased my admiration for the name.
I don't know if I could ever convince my husband to use it. He thinks it sounds like someone's elderly uncle (sigh).
Go for Paul or Paulo!

It was my granddad's English middle name (Hebrew name was totally unrelated, just a P name) and I really cannot warm to Paul at all. When I think about naming for him, I think Pascoe or Peregrine or Patrick. Or amusing him in heaven - he was a joker - with something like Peacemaker.
Paul feels too Christian for me, really. It seems like a trying-to-pass name to imagine putting on my own kid. I think it was, in the '30s when my granddad was born - I'm not really with that. It doesn't go back any further in my family tree then that, either.
I do like Saul. Could all just be a matter of what you're used to.
I kinda like Pax - so I can see gravitating towards a one-syllable name with more history. I can understand Paul's draw for some, it just doesn't quite work for me. Maybe I need to focus on images of a young Paul Newman?
