I don't care for it. There's Better Call Saul, then there's the Biblical dude. Also, it's such a puny kind of name, with an odd spelling. Oughtn't it be spelled Soll? Weird.

Honestly one of my favorite boy's names. I really like it. It's not too common either, but it's short and sweet.

I know someone named Saul, but pronounced Raul with an S replacing the r.

Better Call Saul!

For those religious...I haven't seen any mention here of Old Testament Saul...he was King of the Israelites, but was disloyal to God, his predecessor Samuel and his successor/son-in-law David. God abandoned him and allowed him to be mortally wounded by Israels enemies.

Kind of confusing because I've most often seen Saul used to name Jewish males, and I've read nothing positive of him in the OT. Jewish parents would not name a child after a New Testament figure like Saul/Paul.

An even uglier name than its counterpart Paul. Very old mannish and unappealing. Just say no to this dud of a name.

Underrated name, in my opinion. It's very nice and would fit anyone.

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. :(

"Talut" is the Arabic form of Saul.
Lee Augustus  1/18/2014
Talut is not Arabic form of Saul, this is a wrong assumption made by many Muslims and non-Muslims due to affects/effects of Judaism/Christianity on Hadiths that are seen as religious source by sectarian Muslims. Two names aren't the same etymologically - Hebrew of Talut would be tet+aleph+lamed+vov+tov based on Arabic Talut.

Much better than the overly-popular Paul.
Dawson  10/2/2010
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 think Saul is a very strong name. It would be great for an adopted child!

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

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.

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