HISTORY OF THE PAUL NAME :
Recorded in over two hundred spelling forms throughout the Christian world this surname is of Roman (pre Christian) origins. The surname spellings range from examples such as Paul, Paule, and Pawle in England, Paolo and Paulo (Spain & Portugal), Pauli and Polo (Italy), Palle (Germany), Pabel (Czech) and Pal (Hungary), to all the patronymic and diminutive forms such as Paulson, Pauly, Paolozzi, Pavek, and many, many more. However spelt the name derives from the Latin word "paulus" meaning small, which became a baptismal term of endearment, as in 'small person'.
is said that
first known recordings of the surname in any spellings are in England and
Germany, and early examples taken from authentic rolls and charters of the
period include that of John Paul, which was dated 1292, in the charters
called 'The Subsidy Rolls' of the city of London. This was during the reign
of King Edward 1st, known as "The Hammer of the Scots," 1272 -
