As you mentioned, it seems the name have noting to do with his baptism. It should be all abbreviations in Hebrew and Greek languages as he was born as a Jew (an Israelite, from the tribe of Benjamin) who uses Hebrew language and also a Roman citizen who follows Greek\Latin (Acts 22:25-29; Phil 3:5).
As he was an intellect in most of the popular languages he might have adopted his Greek\Latin surname "Paulus" once he became a Christian,
Surprisingly this is something different for me from which I learn at Sunday school years back... :)
In HIS Grace,
