You know the good thing about this name is it's not too overused. Also I don't think this name has been on the popularity chart for ages. And another great thing about the name Philippa is it's not out of date and it's way better than Philip. It's also nicer to pronounce it like this: philAppa philia philia-pa. Just to add the "a" sound to it instead of philipp a. It also comes with great classy nicknames.

My daughter's name is Philippa, with the stress usually placed on the second syllable. She's been called "Fifi" or "P. J." since she was very young, and prefers these to her given name. No one ever calls her Philippa.

Philippa is such a gorgeous name with tons of history. Several members of the Medieval English royal family bore this name. (Eleanor was another common name, most likely due to Eleanor of Aquitaine.) It has long-extending roots, yet it's still practical today. I love it!

This is sweet, regal-sounding name due to its popularity during the Middle Ages because of Philippa of Hainualt, queen of England. I really do like this name, but I detest the nickname 'Pippa'.
