Unless you're slurring the name, then, yes, it will sound like "pimp".

I think that this is a cute name. And it conjures up images of a naive, wholesome boy or young man.

Pip is the name of the British boy from South Park. There's an episode dedicated to him (narrated by 'some British guy') that is South Park's version of Great Expectations.

I have nothing against the name (although I have much against Dickens' character) but I just see this working way better for a dog, maybe, than a person.

One of Herman Mellvile's character in Moby Dick was named Pip. He was a black kid who entertained the crew. He went crazy after falling into an ocean.

I like the association with dominoes more than that of the Dickens character. It's a cite nickname.

I love Pip as a nickname, I think it's cute for a child, but somehow carries well into adulthood.

Pip is the name of one of the boys in Five Detectives And Their Dog. It's one of the many book series of Enid Blyton. One of my favourite writers when I was a young girl.
