It would be less controversial to say that "Paul of Tarsis was known as Saul before he became a Christian."

Saul Bellow (June 11, 1915 - April 5, 2005), was an acclaimed Canadian-born American writer. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1976 and the National Medal of Arts in 1988 .

Bellow is best known for writing novels that investigate isolation, spiritual dissociation, and the possibilities of human awakening, echoing his Jewish heritage. While on a Guggenheim fellowship in Paris, he wrote most of his best-known novel, The Adventures of Augie March.

This is the name of a person in the Bible, who later became saved and became known as Paul. Personally I wouldn't name my child this, because of the things Saul did in the Bible would seem like I agreed with him, which I don't.

I think Saul is a beautifully strong name and the meanings, prayed for, asked for, sound perfect for an adopted child!

Much better than the overly-popular Paul.

I completely disagree with the above statement. Paul, in my opinion, is not "overly popular" at all. In fact, I've never met anyone named Paul. And it's currently ranked #186 in the US, which isn't very popular at all, considering its probably getting trumped by all these modern, faddish names. But anyways... I prefer Paul to Saul. Saul to me only fits an old man, while Paul is classic and timeless.

I adore the name Saul. It's a nice, respectable, masculine, religious name and I love the history this name has. Shame it's so underrated. :(
