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."
