Sometimes a name becomes famous in a certain language. But if you translate the name to another language, its history still applies. Take Pablo, for example. Pablo is Paul’s Spanish equivalent. In the Bible, Paul (called Saul) was originally of Jewish descent and known for persecuting Christians. But then he had a “come to Jesus moment” and became a devout Christian. The most famous Pablo of all time is the renowned 20th-century Spanish artist Pablo Picasso.
