Apollo Family History

Apollo Name Meaning
Italian and Spanish: from the Greek personal name Apollo. There are several saints Apollo in the Christian Church, including an Egyptian hermit and monastic leader who died in 395 ad. The personal name derives from the name in classical mythology of the sun god, Apollo, an ancient Indo-European name, found for example in Hittite as Apulana ‘god of the gate’ (from pula ‘gate’, cognate with Greek pyle), therefore ‘protector’, ‘patron’.
