The name Phoebe is not mentioned in the search results provided. However, I can provide a definition of the word "phobia," which is unrelated to the name Phoebe. A phobia is an intense, enduring fear of an identifiable object or situation that may lead to panic symptoms, distress, and avoidance. It is an anxiety disorder, defined by a persistent and excessive fear of an object or situation, resulting in a rapid onset of fear and usually present for more than six months. The origin of the word "phobia" dates back to the ancient Greek word "phobos," meaning "fear". The ancient Greeks used this word and made it into the suffix -phobia, indicating a specific fear. The word-forming element from Greek "phobos" means "fear, panic fear, terror, outward show of fear; object of fear or terror". The psychological sense of "an abnormal or irrational fear" is attested by 1895 and has been used since then to describe various types of phobias, such as agoraphobia, acrophobia, and zoophobia.
