    Pronounced ‘fee-bee’: Latin form of the name of a Greek deity, Phoibē (from phoibos ‘bright’), partly identified with Artemis, goddess of the moon and of hunting, sister of the sun god Apollo, who was also known as Phoibos (Latin Phoebus). The name was very popular in the late 17th century and has again enjoyed considerable popularity since the 1990s.
