Etymology of the name PHOEBUS.
Meaning of the baby name PHOEBUS.

  

PHOEBUS.  Latin form of Greek Phoibos (q.v.), meaning "the light of life" or "pure radiance."  Usage: America, Italy.
    Phoebus Aaron Theodore Levene, M.D. (d. 1940), was a Russian-American biochemist. (Wiki)

    Phoebus and Phoebe had many worshippers in Greece, and gradually grew to be regarded as the deities of the sun and moon, owing probably to the original meaning of their names = to shine, coming from the Greek word φάω (phao); and Phoebe is probably of greater antiquity than Artemis.
.    .    .    .
... Phoebus has never been used in England, though in the Pyrenees it was, during the Middle Ages, given to some of the Counts of Foix, and Victor Hugo has so named one of his characters (Captain Phoebus) in his celebrated novel Notre Dame de Paris. (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905).
