    little Dale, dressed like Apollo

    Hi Gentlemen & Ladies

    Please help, I can not understand the meaning of the following sentence:

    "In second grade, when it was time to do a project, everyone rolled their eyes as little Dale, dressed like Apollo, held up his helpful chart of the 12 gods of Olympus and their major fields."

    But what does Dale mean? a valley? a little valley?
    Is it slang to call a boy a Dale?

    It is a pretty common boy's name.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
