Quick question: 

 

What are your thoughts on Apollo, and do you think it could (without too much confusion) honor a Paul (my grandpa)? I think Paul is a nice enough name, but I like Apollo more. I would love combo suggestions with it in the middle spot, and maybe some with it as a first. :) Also, nicknames. If he goes by Apollo, could Paul be his nickname, or is it too confusing with the spelling change?  I love Olly, but that is my brother Oliver's nickname. But maybe that's a way to honor "Uncle Oliver." But nicknames are of least importance as I'm not pregnant and Apollo isn't the top of my list ;) lol

Apollo is cool as a middle name.  And it definitely would honor a Paul.  I think it's more interesting than Paul (no offense).  Paul could be his nickname, but if you use it as a middle, there is no need to use that as a nickname.  But if you use it as a first, Paul definitely works.  He could also go by Olly, and that would be a nice way to honor "Uncle Oliver".  :)

Thanks, Madi  :)  I agree, Apollo is much more interesting than Paul.

I love Apollo! <3 I've always loved mythological names. Maybe Paul could be a possible nickname? I think the two are close enough, just a twist on Paul. I could see how Olly could definitely work as well.

 

How about
