Thaïs, Apolline, & Delphine

Can you see the connection between the three names? (They have a hidden fil rouge as a common meaning and background!)

I can see a connection between [name_f]Apolline[/name_f] and [name_f]Thaïs[/name_f] but I don’t see for [name_f]Delphine[/name_f], except for their Greek roots and the shared letter a.

All three of them are epithets of [name_m]Apollo[/name_m] or names referring to the god :)))

@heartwings I thought [name_f]Delphine[/name_f] meant Dolphin and [name_f]Thaïs[/name_f] was from [name_f]Thea[/name_f], which means goddess, but not necessarily [name_m]Apollo[/name_m]?

[name_f]Thaïs[/name_f] → Pythaïs → The Priestess of Oracles of [name_f]Delphi[/name_f] + One of the most used epithets of [name_m]Apollo[/name_m]

[name_f]Delphine[/name_f] → [name_f]Oracle[/name_f] of [name_f]Delphi[/name_f]
