User comments for Apollonia
Apollonia is the name of Prince's love interest in the movie Purple Rain. There was a girl group named Apollonia Six that came out of this movie.
"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.
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".
Apollonia is the name of Kino's fat sister in law in John Steinbeck's The Pearl.
