I like Apollo. I like Ares too. I like Apollo a bit better though. I think Apollo is fresh and cool and usable for a myth name. Then again, I am Greek and know people named Apollo, so I guess it depends. I don't know if a lot of people associated it with Apollo Ohno, but that's one of the things I think of. I think you'd have to be daring to use it, but it wouldn't too out there.Just another teenberry and writer, a lover of names

I love Apollo. It's so sweeping and strong, and it's quite usable as far as mythology names go. It's a bit more daring than other choices, but still accessible, and might make a great middle paired with a more traditional first (think Benjamin Apollo or Joseph Apollo).
Don't name your kid Frank Castle. That's the Punisher's name. I'd be willing to see a little Wade Wilson before a little Frank Castle. Deadpool at least has a sense of humor.

lol at Hermione up there. I agree about Deadpool :P
Anyway, I love Apollo. He's my husbands god and that makes me like the name a lot more than I usually would. I like it better than Ares and think it's more usable. Ares a violent god, murder and bloodshed and war and all. Apollo has plague, but he also has light, music, poetry and fortune telling so it balances it out.
I think Apolo Ono makes it more usable to the average person. It's not too much with names like Milo, Hugo and other sound a like names that are popular.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^ Call me Dantea or Remy
