bright or radiant
Take your pick of well-known Phoebes (pronounced FEE-bee): In the Bible, Phoebe is a Christian woman who aided Paul and others. In Greek mythology, the name is a reference to Phoebus Apollo, the god of the sun, which explains the name’s meaning, “bright” or “radiant.” On TV reruns, Phoebe Buffay is the quirky member of the beloved gang on “Friends.” Whichever Phoebe is your favorite, baby is sure to shine bright with this name.
