Sol Origin and Meaning

The name Sol is a boy's name of Spanish origin meaning "sun".

Although pinochle-playing partner Sam came out of retirement, we don't see it happening to Sol. Near soundalike Saul has more of a shot.

Sol was also a Roman god/personification of the sun, and an epithet of sun-god Apollo.
