Meaning of Apollo

The meaning of the name Apollo is unclear. It could mean “to destroy” (from ancient Greek “apóllūmi/ᾰ̓πόλλῡμῐ”) or “averter of evil”, because Apollo is the God who affords help and fends off evil. Another meaning is “not many” (from ancient Greek “a-“ = not + “pollón/πολλόν” = many). His byname was Phoibos, which means “bright”. Besides, Apollon could mean “ever-shooting” or “always shooting” (from ancient Greek “aeibállōn/ἀειβάλλων”).
