    It's Павел (a male name). Short form is Паша.

    Why is it spelled Павлу, it appears to be in the instrumental.

    Re: Павлу?

    It's spelled Павлу because it's in the dative case:

    "There were more and more books on the shelf which was beautifully made for Pavel by his carpenter-friend."

    I don't know. Probably, there is some rule, that expalines why the "e" is omitted. It's a rather common thing (костер - костру, бобер - бобру, etc.)

    In old Russian there were some letters Small or Big Yer in such places.

    In these words in "strong" position it changed to Е (or О). In "weak" position it disappear.

    Павьлъ - Павьлоу (Павьлу)
