Phoebus is a masculine name from the Greek word phoibos, meaning “bright one.” In the classic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Captain Phoebus is one of the main characters. Meanwhile, in Greek mythology, Phoebus is the son of Zeus and Leto, and the twin brother of Artemis, and is also known as Apollo, the god of light. Phoebus is used more when poetically referring to the Sun. If you believe your child will brighten up every room they walk into, maybe they're a born Phoebus.
