At the risk of spamming the board, I *have* to comment on the comment about the 15-century man who spinned dogs: What?!?

I've never liked this name spelled with an "F" especially for a boy. It looks girlish (like Filipa) to me if it's spelled "Filip." Philip is a much better spelling and looks more masculine.

I agree that Philip looks better, but acknowledging the fact that not everyone uses English pronunciations and spelling, Filip is nice too.
