It's hard not to hear the name Paulo and instantly think of Scottish singing sensation Paulo Nutini. This boy's name has a couple of different origins, with primary roots in Latin, as it stems from the traditional name, Paul. Paul, a Biblical figure and one of the 12 Apostles, means "small" or "humble." No doubt you would want your special boy to practice humility in life and put aside ego in favor of compassion.
