Chand Kaul says Kaul sirname means 'well born' and came from the priest or high priest background. Mahakaul or the great Kauls is another name for Lord Shiva, and this could also be one of the origins of this name. There are Kauls in Germanic countries too and one of the drivations of the Germanic Kauls is from the Bishop or priests. Just a coincidence as they are other probable origins for the German Kauls. Of course Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru is the most well known of Kauls.

Ashwani Kaul says I was reading a very old book - Kashmiri Pandit by Anand Koul written in 1924 and it has a table at the end on Kashmiri surnames. Interestingly the surname Kaul is never spelled as Kaul through the whole book. It is always written as Koul. This is most likely a recent change.

Ashok says कौल, کاول - Wikipedia has some information on this surname - some is probably true and some may not be - The surname Kaul may have originated from the Sanskrit word Kaula 'Well Born' (from Sanskrit Kula 'Family'). The surname Kaul may have been derived from Mahakaul (The Great Kaul), which is an epithet of Shiva. This has led many scholars to believe that all Shaivas of Kashmir could have been Kauls. This view, however, is not supported by too many scholars. Kaul equates to Kula (clan in English) in Sanskrit. Clan is Klane in German.

Rahul says Indian (Kashmir): Hindu (Brahman) name, from Sanskrit kaula ‘well-born’ (from Sanskrit kula ‘family’). According to Koul (1994), the surname Kaul is derived from Mahakaul meaning ‘the great Kaul’, which is an epithet of the god Shiva.
