"Apollonia" is the old name of "Sozopol" (the stress is on the 2nd "o"), which is one of the oldest Bulgarian towns. 2600 years ago Greek settlers from Asia Minor saw a peninsula with several isles at the southwest Black Sea coast and decided to make it their hometown. The Greeks called it "Apollonia" in the name of god Apollon - patron of arts. That is why a festival of arts called "Apollonia" is hold in Sozopol each year, from the 1st September to the 10th September.

The middle-name of my legal name. I don't like it. Sounds too weird, if not masculine or just plain open to all kinds of bland insults.

I always thought "Polly" was a nickname for Apollonia or at least I thought it could work as one. Kinda like the nickname "Polly" except for the parrot association, that sure would be a burden.

I think this is a very rare name. It's more of a second name or something. No offense but it reminds me either of a big, round lady or of a rebellious, ill-tempered girl. I don't know why but I think it's a bit silly to name a child this. Personally, it's not one of my favorites.

This is a beautiful name. But please don't call her Apple for short!

I absolutely love this name, it has to be one of the most beautiful ancient Greek names ever and anyone who has this name should be proud.

Apollonia Corleone was the characters name of the lovely Italian girl that Al Pacino (Michael Corleone) married in the Godfather Part 1.

I always think of two people when I hear this name:
1. Apollonia, ill-fated wife of Michael Corleone, in "the Godfather".
2. Apollonia the singer, and love interest of Prince, in "Purple Rain".

I adore Apollonia with the nickname Polly.

Apollonia is the name of Kino's fat sister in law in John Steinbeck's The Pearl.

Sounds a little too fairytalish to me.

I have researched birth certificates-- and one baby girl born 1812, Italy bore the first name, "Apollonia." I believe that it is safe to say it has been in Italian usage for a number of years... perhaps even longer than what I reported.

I went to school with a girl of this name. She pronounced it A-pull-oh-nee-ah, and we mostly called her Apple. But it was never a teasing thing, just a nickname, and I'm pretty sure she chose that nickname herself. I think it's just gorgeous, and people complemented her on it a lot. And she looked the part, with fairy-ish hair.
