PAULINE.  French feminine form of Paul (q.v.), meaning "little."  Also sometimes spelled Pauleen, and Paulene.  Usage: America, Australia, Austria, Belgium, England, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Rwanda, South Africa.
    Pauline Viardot (d. 1910), was a French composer and mezzo-soprano of Spanish descent.  Pauline Collins, an English actress.  Pauline McLynn, an Irish actress. (Wiki)

Pauline, the meekly bright! though now no more
Her clear eye flash'd with youth's all-tameless glee,
Yet something holier than its dayspring wore,
There in soft rest lay beautiful to see;
A charm with graver, tenderer, sweetness fraught--
The blending of deep love and matron thought.

Through the gay throng she moved, serenely fair,
And such calm joy as fills a moonlight sky
Sat on her brow beneath its graceful hair,
As her young daughter in the dance went by,
With the fleet step of one that yet hath known
Smiles and kind voices in this world alone.

    The above verses are taken from Mrs. Hemans' poem entitled Pauline, which commemorates the self-devotion of the Princess Pauline Schwartzenberg, who, upon the occasion of a fire breaking out in a castle where festivities were in full progress, sacrificed her own life in the endeavour to save that of her daughter... (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905).
