Apart from the obvious Greek mythology son of Zeus, another "famous" bearer is the fictional character "Cpt. Lee 'Apollo' Adama" from the 2003 TV-series "Battlestar Galactica". Although it's only his nickname and pilot-name, he is almost only called Apollo. Also because it fits him better than Lee.

Actually Apolo Anton Ohno's first name is not in reference to the Greek God Apollo. His father, Yuki, named him, using the Greek "ap" and "lo". The "ap" meaning to lead, and the "lo" meaning "away from" or "steering away from". The "o" connects them, making his name mean "to lead away from."

The NASA missions to the moon were called the Apollo missions. The most famous of these was Apollo 11, the first to actually land on the moon. Apollo 13, another famous mission, has had a movie made about it bearing that name.

Boring yet interesting. It looks like it has to do with apples or horses.

It is supposed to be pronounced a-POH-loh never a-PAW-loh otherwise it sounds sound like polly with an O at the end and A at the beginning.

The name of a famous theater in New York City. It comes on that hiphop show "It's Showtime at the Apollo." This name also happens to be referenced a lot for some reason in classic films.

This name was an epithet apparently given to a handsome young man in the 18th through early century. There is a brief reference in the Magnificent Ambersons (1942) by Orson Welles. "Apollo" was also a famous music company in the 1930's. The Waltons also named their kitten this in the episode "The Fastidious Wife" which kinda gets me because I don't know what they meant by naming such a small kitten a name with such an extravagant association or implication such as this lol. I always thought it was pronounced a-POH-loh until I heard people say it.

Apollo is a gorgeous name. It makes me think of a very complex, intelligent character. That's why I named my horse Apollo!

Alright people, I knew this would come up sooner or later. Apollo was homosexual. BIG DEAL! There is nothing wrong with that! Who the hell cares what people's sexual preferences are!? Some people say Jesus is homosexual! WHAT NOW!? Have you all had your little bubbles of denial burst!? Good! I am sick and tired of people making fun of other people for being homosexual. It makes me sick how narrow-minded we are!

ACTUALLY I think Apollo would be a rather cute name for a girl.

Actually, the god Apollo was BIsexual, not just homosexual. Because he was so smokin' hot, both genders wanted him. May have gotten laid even more often than his dad, though a lot have sad endings, perhaps due to his making fun of Eros when he was a kid.

This is one of my absolute favourite boy names! The first thing I imagine when I hear this name (besides the Greek God) is the sun! It sounds so handsome and masculine but also is soft sounding at the same time! I LOVE IT!
-- LadyVanRaven  7/20/2012
I find it a very strong, regal name. Whenever I hear it, I picture a muscular, dark-skinned man with fiery eyes. I wouldn't use it on a child, of course, but I still think it's a jewel of a name.

Also, to lillyanna: No one has said anything derogative toward homosexuals on this page. There is no need to get so worked up.
