Actually I'm Spanish and my name is Raúl. For some people it is very hard to pronounce because the sound of "r" in Spanish is hard. Also Spanish words finished on "l" are weird, but the name is very beautiful! I didn't know there was an English version, thanks you so much!

It seems to me like Raul is the Spanish form of the Hebrew name Reuel, which means "Friend of God" (from the elements Reu--friend, and El--God). At least, it sounds closer to the Hebrew linguistically than it does to whatever those other names were, Ralph and stuff.

Plus I like the Hebrew name and meaning better, so I like to think that the Spanish name would be associated with that meaning. That and the fact that Spanish names are heavily influenced by Biblical names (for example, Sudi, Jesus, Usai, etc.)
