When did Paul McCartney start going by the name Paul? Has this ever been addressed in biographies or interviews?

His full name is James Paul McCartney. His father's name was also James. Did they just start calling him Paul immediately, to distinguish between father and son? Did anyone ever call him James (or Jim or whatever)?
