* Greek was the lingua franca of the eastern Mediterranean in antiquity. Hebrew has some sounds and naming conventions that give Greek speakers fits (in particular, Greek doesn't have a "sh" sound). So many biblical Jewish figures are now known by Greekified versions of their names--"Moshe" became "Moses", "Shlomo" became "Solomon", and most notably, "Yeshua" became "Jesus". If a Jew did any traveling, he'd be pretty likely to also have a Greek name just to make it easier on other folks--so Sha'ul ("Saul") of Tarsus went by the handle "Paulus" ("Paul").
