A: The use of "Apollo" as a brand name will depend on various factors, including the nature of your business and the goods or services you offer. It's possible that the term "Apollo" is already registered as a trademark by another company in your industry, in which case you may not be able to use it without infringing on their rights.

To determine whether you can use the name "Apollo" for your brand, you should conduct a trademark search to see if the name is already registered. You may also want to consult with a trademark attorney to get a professional opinion on whether your proposed use of the name would be considered infringing or not.
