    • Meaning:

      "gift of God or wealthy guardian"

      To the thousands of girls who screamed the name of their favorite Beatle in the 1960s, the boys' name Paul had a thrillingly unique image, but to the rest of the world, then and now, it's a name that's so simple and yet so widely diffuse that it could belong to almost anyone. Paul is an ancient name for boys -- popular in Roman and medieval times -- that's not very fashionable now, which can work in its favor, scarcity balancing simplicity.
  19. LucilleHeart
    • Origin:

      French variation of Latin Lucilla
    • Meaning:

      "light"
