Paulene is a girl’s name of French and Latin origin. It’s a variant of Pauline, which is a French feminine form of Paul, itself deriving from the Latin name Paulus. Paulus means “small” or “humble,” making it a great choice if you want to teach baby the importance of always staying modest and down-to-earth! Paul is a popular name among Christians because of the apostle Saint Paul, and has developed many variants throughout the world. Pauline became popular in 20th-century France, and ranked high in the US baby name charts from 1880 to 1959, giving it a charming vintage feel. Paulene is a less common spelling, perhaps inspired by names like Jolene and Darlene.
