According to the Social Security Administration here are the stats for the popularity of the male first name Paul for boys born in every year since 1990:

Year of birth Rank

2003 124
2002 118
2001 109
2000 100
1999 95
1998 89
1997 79
1996 78
1995 71
1994 64
1993 56
1992 55
1991 53
1990 49
Note: Rank 1 is the most popular, rank 2 is the next most popular, and so forth.You did not specify the sex for the name Paul, sowe used male data based on popularity.Name data are from Social Security card applications for births thatoccurred in the United States.

Now according to the US Census Bureau in the 1990 census Paul was the 13th most common name with 0.948% of the sample population having that name.

Ok with that many Paul?s and it?s declining popularity over the last 15 years I think it?s time to recognise the pick of the crop.

I?ve introduced the Paul of the Day category to highlight top Pauls.
