Phoebe is a feminine name, a Latinized form of the Greek name Φοίβη (Phoibe), which meant "bright, pure" from Greek φοῖβος (phoibos).

In Greek mythology Phoibe was a Titan associated with the moon. This was also an epithet of her granddaughter Artemis. A moon of Saturn bears this name in honour of the Titan. This name also appears in the Paul's epistle to the Romans in the New Testament, where it belongs to a female minister in the church at Kechries.
