Comments on Apollo:

The NASA missions to the moon were called the Apollo missions. The most famous of these was Apollo 11, the first to actually land on the moon. Apollo 13, another famous mission, has had a movie made about it bearing that name.

Apollo is a gorgeous name. It makes me think of a very complex, intelligent character. That’s why I named my horse Apollo!

Name for 18th February- Zeus

nameberry.com-The supreme Olympian god, and a mighty image for a little fella to live up to, but more and more parents are beginning to consider it seriously.

behindthename.com-The name of a Greek god, related to the old Indo-European god *Dyeus whose name probably meant “shine” or “sky”. In Greek mythology he was the highest of the gods. After he and his siblings defeated the Titans, Zeus ruled over the earth and humankind from atop Mount Olympus. He had control over the weather and his weapon was a thunderbolt

wikipedia.org

Zeus (pronounced /ˈz(j)uːs/; Ancient Greek: Ζεύς; Modern Greek: Δίας) is the King of the Gods, the ruler of Mount Olympus and the god of the sky and thunder in Greek mythology. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull, and oak. In addition to his Indo-European inheritance, the classical “cloud-gatherer” also derives certain iconographic traits from the cultures of the Ancient Near East, such as the scepter. Zeus is frequently depicted by Greek artists in one of two poses: standing, striding forward, with a thunderbolt leveled in his raised right hand, or seated in majesty.
Zeus was the child of Cronus and Rhea, and the youngest of his siblings. In most traditions he was married to Hera, although, at the oracle of Dodona, his consort was Dione: according to the Iliad, he is the father of Aphrodite by Dione. He is known for his erotic escapades. These resulted in many godly and heroic offspring, including Athena, Apollo and Artemis, Hermes, Persephone (by Demeter), Dionysus, Perseus, Heracles, Helen, Minos, and the Muses (by Mnemosyne); by Hera, he is usually said to have fathered Ares, Hebe and Hephaestus.[2]
In Greek, the god’s name is Ζεύς Zeús /zdeús/ or /dzeús/ (Modern Greek /’zefs/) in the nominative case and Διός Diós in the genitive case. His Roman counterpart was Jupiter and his Etruscan counterpart Tinia. In Hindu mythology his counterpart was Indra with ever common weapon as thunderbolt, which he could hold like a staff.
