*Paul* will never go out of style. It has special meaning for readers of the New Testament, but parents of any religious persuasion would do well to pick this one for their son. You simply cannot go wrong with this name.

Famous actor Paul Newman (born January 26, 1925) bears this name. He began his movie film in 1954 and more than 50 years later still shines on the screen. All my family thinks about him, how wonderful he is still handsome at 81!

I know a guy called 'Paul' and I don't really agree that it's timeless. I think that it is only good for adult guys, cause this guy I know, he is young, and it DOES NOT suit him. I think the name though, it's really nice.

Uggh. I really despise this name. It makes such an ugly sound when said! I would take any other biblical name over this atrocity. There is nothing interesting, or attractive, to it. It's not timeless -- it's heinous! A boring, hideous name, in my opinion. Also, it reminds me of vomit for some reason. Please, don't name your sons this awful name!
-- Pheadirean  7/2/2006
I would have to agree that it is a timeless classic, look how long it has been in usage, it isn't a fad name that has faded out. I think Paul is a very nice name.

I think Paul is a wonderful name. I think the name is just like Luke. You're not going to like it when you're younger because it's so short and you don't really have a nickname. But this name is a classic. It is for all time.

I love this name on a teenager. It makes me think of a creative music-loving person. The name doesn't work on a little boy, and I don't thik it works on a grown man. In my story, Paul is the lead singer of a band. He's based on Paul Hewson (Bono!) Great name I think.

I love this name for the same reason I love the girl's name Claire - it is so clear, clean, classic and timeless. And many of the Pauls I've known have been so handsome. For those who think it's short and boring, consider Paulinus, not on this database but the name of Roman generals and missionaries, including a governor of Roman Britain and the first Archbishop of York.

I've grown very fond of my name, thank you. It's plain but strong, timeless--not trendy, and I've passed it on to my eldest son.

Since the trends seem to indicate more and more parents are using exotic or artistic sounding names for their kids, simple classic names like Paul actually are beginning to stand out to me. That is one of the reasons I named my son Paul, and it is a family name, used often for a middle name, but no one in my family until my son was born went by Paul. Nevertheless, I must admit Paul wasn't my first choice, but my husband vetoed the more quirky Linus. My son's only 4 weeks old, but the name feels more and more appropriate for him each day. And Linus, which seems unique at the moment, will probably get discovered and become trendy soon.
-- afmastro  4/11/2010
I used to like this name, but now I have stopped liking it. Paul sounds boring and old-fashioned, even though it's still in common use. What also puts me off to this name is the fact that Paul is Bono's real name. I dislike Bono and find him very stuck-up.

I think Paul is a very young, soft name, and gives an impression of kindness. It sounds appropriate for all ages and is, as previously stated, absolutely timeless.

Sorry, unlike! Avoid! It is regrettably my husband's name and though I am completely used to it and mostly desensitised to it for everyday usage, I kinda always thought it was awful before I met him. He's amazing and well, this is so common and plain and nothingy and safe! It's so short. Why would you choose it? It doesn't mean anything much. And if you don't like it, there is nothing nicknamey to be done about it. It sounds horrible to enunciate (especially with a south London accent), it's either like barking or stretched-out whining... if I ever have to call out to him in public I instantly realise I sound like a screeching fishwife and get really embarrassed!

While I understand that this is an English site, I don't think it's accurate to say that "Paul" is the biblical version of the name. It is so only in an English bible (or French). But in a Spanish bible it would be Pablo, in an Italian bible will be Paolo, etc. In other words, "Paul" is the English translation of a name present in the bible.

Paul Cézanne was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne can be said to form the bridge between late 19th century Impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism. The line attributed to both Matisse and Picasso that Cézanne "is the father of us all" cannot be easily dismissed.

Paul Walker, best known for playing Brian O’Connor in the Fast and Furious movie franchise, perished in a tragic car accident on November 30, 2013 at 40 years old. I hope that his legacy will extend beyond acting and fast cars… He was a father, a fan of all things marine biology, and a humanitarian. In March 2010, Walker went to Constitucion, Chile to offer his help and support to the people injured in the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that struck on February 27. Later that same year, he flew with his humanitarian aid team, REACH OUT Worldwide, to Haiti to lend a helping hand to the 2010 Haiti earthquake victims. Paul Walker seemed like an all-around good guy who was taken far too soon. He touched many people and the makeshift memorials around the country are proof.

R.I. P. Paul Walker.

I have tried and tried, but I cannot find anything I like about this name, it's short, bland, boring and ugly to me. I would never name my son it. I guess the only reason I don't HATE it is because it is a timeless name, but I still don't like it.

I hate this name. One reason is, in Islam we believe Paul to be an evil man. We believe that Early Christianity was a perfect religion of God, but Paul then corrupted and bastardized the religion and destroying God's word, thus God calling upon Muhammad to restore his true word with the Quran. Even then, I just find this name to be ugly, and the Arabic version "Boulos" is even worse. The one good thing I can say is that it's Bono's real name (I'm a fan of U2).
