Why Paulus? Because of Aemilius Paulus Macedonicus

Lucius Aemilius Paullus Macedonicus (c. 229 BC – 160 BC) was a two-time consul of the Roman Republic and a noted general who conquered Macedon, putting an end to the Antigonid dynasty in the Third Macedonian War.

If the Roman Paul conquered the Greeks in name of Rome, the Jewish Paulus conquered the Greeks in the name of Christ.
