Italian, variation of Paul

Paolo Origin and Meaning

The name Paolo is a boy's name of Italian origin meaning "small".
Paolo is an irresistibly lush Italian name for boys, 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.
