Apollon is a ♂ male name.
Apollon is a name from Greek mythology, he was adopted by the Romans as Apollo into their mythology. He was one of the Olympian deities and the God of archery, art, truth and prophecy, healing, light, spring, poetry, and more. His parents are Zeus and Leto and his twin sister is called Artemis.
The meaning of the name Apollon is unsure. It could mean “to destroy” (from ancient Greek “apóllūmi/ᾰ̓πόλλῡμῐ”) or “averter of evil”, because Apollon 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”).
