It means " very sweet" and there is a a biblical character named Pollux. The Greek mythology associations are cool too. I like it.

Oh, and I must mention that while I like this name, I will always associate it with that movie. It was a poorly made low budget film

Castor and Pollux were the names of these dogs in this weird movie I watched. At first, I thought they were just names, but now I get it! Quite clever and unexpected

Love this name, love the nickname Polly for a girl... Could Pollux transfer over to a girl easily?
