I agree with micadeolu; I believe that his name was changed when in Rome. The Hebrew meaning of the name "Saul" means "desired", which raises the question, "Was his name predestined before his birth?" I believe so. In other words, God desired Saul/Paul to be the leader of the Gentile nations concerning salvation in Yeshua/Jesus Christ.
As far as tithing being a "Christian" practice? No.
It was a Jewish OLD TESTAMENT practice. It was used as a type and shadow of the new covenant. Jesus Christ is our first fruit (tithe) now!
Yes He did. Jesus suggested the name Paul for Saul even as he suggested Peter for Simon.
