The feminine of Apollo, who was the God of the Sun, also considered to be the God of Beauty, Wisdom, Art and Music. The name is suitable for all ages, and has an understated, old-fashioned charm. It also has the sweet, nature nickname of Apple.

This is the feminine form of the Latin name Apollonios, which is derived from the name of the Greek god Apollo. A noted bearer is St. Apollonia of Alexandria, who is the patron saint of Dentists, due to her martyrdom by having her teeth yanked out one by one.
