“The name “Paul” is from the Latin, meaning “small.” Hebrew parents often gave their sons a Gentile name in addition to a Jewish one. From the meaning of this name and from I Corinthians 10:10, “His bodily presence is weak,” it is thought that Paul was of diminutive stature. His Hebrew name was Saul, which word meant “to ask or pray.”
And Saul in Greek is Saulos which has a meaning of "walk like a prostitute" so it would be a reason to use the name Paul when among gentiles.
