Hello @MichelQuebecer 

I'm not sure anyone really knows the answer 🙂

on the web, you will find explanations on the "paypal" project

here's what some people think about the name 🙂

 

source wikipedia

I do not know what explanation gives the company of the origin of its name, but a small detour by a bilingual dictionary (Le Robert & Collins, 2010) indicates that PAL , pronounced [pæl], means in English "boyfriend, girlfriend ", In a rather relaxed language level (" buddy ", if you like). Which corresponds to the image that the company seems to want to give of it, namely a familiar tool for online payment.
