paul

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > italic > latin
ORIGIN:
latin 
NAME ROOT:
PARVUS > PARVULUS > PAULUS
MEANING:
This name derives from the Latin “Paulus”, which in turn derives from the Latin “parvus > parvulus”, meaning “tiny, small, humble, modest”. It is a common name in countries and ethnicities with a Christian heritage (Eastern Orthodoxy, Catholicism, Protestantism) and, beyond Europe, in Christian religious communities throughout the world. The name exists since the Roman times and derives from the Roman family name Paulus or Paullus - in particular in the Roman patrician family of the Gens "group of people, clan" Aemilia. Paul the Apostle, original name Saul of Tarsus was a Christian missionary who took the gospel of Christ to the first-century world. He is generally considered one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age.
