How come Apollo, a Greek god of sun, has no Roman counterpart as one would to expect when it comes to Roman mythology? In other words, what was the name of a Roman god of sun?

Every single one of Greek deities has a Roman counterpart, all except Apollo. So, what's the catch? Did Romans ran out of names for their gods, या what? Just curious, that's all.

The Romans changed the Greek gods' names to their Latin equivalents. With that, the Greek Phoebus Apollo (Also simply known as "Apollo") remained as Apollo for the Romans.

Also, Apollo was the god of many things (such as light, prophecy and medicine), not just the sun. If you're looking for the god who is recognized specifically as "God of the Sun", that would be the Roman counterpart of Greece's Helios - Sol.

Well, just as आप said, the Greek gods have their Roman counterparts, because the Romans pretty much adopted their entire religion. The only changes they made were the names. (Plus they added one या two gods of their own inventions. Most notably Janus, the two-faced god.) Among the most important Greek(and Roman) deities Apollo is indeed the only one whose name the Romans didn't change. So basically, answering your question, Apollo's Roman name was Apollo. That's it. There is no catch.
द्वारा the way Roman poets often only refer to Apollo as Phoebus , but that's sort of just a descriptive term (it means "bright") and the Greeks were also using it, calling him Phoebus Apollo.
Anyway I hope this जवाब your question. :)
