Apoliono...a name for the ages!

Several months ago I had the pleasure of having Apoliono as an Uber passenger.

Born in Texas, but raised in Florida, Apoliono has a bachelor's degree in Culinary Arts and is the Grill Master at Red Lobster in Fort Myers.

Because his co-workers often have difficulty pronouncing his name (A-polly-on-oh) he utilizes several AKA's... these include "Paul", "Pauly", and "Polo".

His unique name has been passed down many generations from his great-great-great-great grandfather. The name has ancient Greek origins, but is derived from the name of a mathematician, Apollonius of Perga, who advanced the study of geometry before the birth of Christ.

Apoliono comes from a large family and has five brothers and four sisters.

Thanks to his mother, who attended a nursing college in Boston, Apoliono has been a Red Sox fan his entire life. He even bears a Red Sox tattoo on his forearm!

It was my pleasure to meet such an enthusiastic and friendly young man with a name for the ages!

Please welcome Apoliono to the Ubernamez blog!
