Pauleen is a girl’s name of French and Latin origin. It’s a variant of Pauline, a French feminine form of Paul, which derives from the Latin name Paulus, meaning “small” or “humble.” A meaning that’s sure to keep baby grounded! A popular Christian name, Paul is associated with Saint Paul, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus. Pauline became popular in 20th-century France, and ranked within the top 500 baby names in the US from 1880 to 1959. Pauleen is a less common spelling, probably inspired by Irish names like Kathleen and Eileen, which feature the Irish “-ín” diminutive.
