This is an adorable name for a girl.

I blush every time I see this name. In Swedish it's a four-letter word. I don't want to say what it means.

I don't really like this name. I find it a little hard to pronounce for some reason (?).

It's okay if you're a fairy.

Pippa Cross is the name of a beautiful character in Libba Bray's A Great and Terrible Beauty. Pippa is vain and empty headed, but I like the name anyway.

I only know the name from A Great And Terrible Beauty (mentioned above) and its sequal, Rebel Angels. I don't think that the character is completely vain or completely empty headed. She's actually quite a confusing character and is made more so in the sequel. Really, I don't know what to think of the name or the character, though I suppose it could be cute for a little girl.

I'm from Australia and Pippa is just a name, not a nickname. It's so cute!

This is the coolest name ever!

It's really cute!

This is a pretty name. I think it works best as a nickname.
scarletquillraven  2/17/2007
This name is awfully, disgustingly, brutally cute. I would definitely name my child this!

In the 1980s on the tv sitcom "The Facts of Life" there was a character from Australia named Pippa McKenna, played by Sherrie Krenn. Having grown up watching that show, the name Pippa seems very "Australian" to me. :b

Pippa Funnell is an amazing Three Day Event rider. She has won the Badminton Horse Trials three times, and has placed in the Olympics three times as well.

Personally, I think this is a beautiful name for a girl. If I ever have a daughter, I am going to name her Pippa.

Pippa is a vulgular word for having sex in Swedish.
Ozma  4/20/2008
I love the name Pippa! It's so amazingly adorable! It makes me think of a beautiful redheaded woman. In a story I am working on, the main character's name is Pippa, and yes, she is beautiful and redheaded. Pippa is a wonderful name!

Pippa is the name of a mouse in an old children's book (possibly more, but I've never seen them).
welovejamesarness  9/4/2008
That's not too cool that Pippa is a vulgar word for sex in Swedish. But putting that aside I love the name. I never heard of it until I read A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. The character was ok. When I first read the book I didn't like her. Too hopeless romantic for me. But when I reread the book a couple years later she grew on me and I saw more than that in her.
Fire1815  9/7/2008
It reminds me of the girl in "A Great and Terrible Beauty," of whom I am not particularly fond. It's a nice name, though, but you'll be quick to outgrow it once you reach your sixth birthday. That's my opinion, anyway.
flamestar  11/24/2008
I think Pippa is really nice, but only as a nickname.
-Julia-  9/2/2009
I always think of the Swedish slang Pippa, meaning "having sex with". But also Pippi Långstrump (Pippi Longstocking).
Frozten  10/18/2009
While I can understand the attraction of the sweet-sounding Pippa, I'd advise against using it as a full name. It will not be well received everywhere.
vomiting  11/26/2009
I like this name, it's very sweet for a girl. I think better as a name than pet name because for me, Philippa is a bit dull.
I'm undecided if it's too cutesy because like Mollie, Daisy etc it's cute for a kid but one day she's gonna be 40!
northernlight  4/2/2010
Do not use this name on your child, it is the Swedish verb meaning "to have sex" but not in a nice way. :(
― Anonymous User  4/27/2010
I can't stand this nickname. It sounds very silly and childish. Philippa is a nice name, though. Too bad it has an awful English nickname.
bananarama  6/24/2010
I love the name Philippa and this is the perfect nickname!

Pippa Rede, main character from "In The Land of Winter".

It's okay, all of the douple-P names (Pippa, Piper, Pippin) pack a punch when said, and I always think of a really energetic redhead with more energy than brains.
DaphneSusan  1/11/2011
OMG! In Poland pipa is a derogatory name for vagina. Mostly used metaphorically, applied to people as an insult.

Pippa Black is an Australian actress. She plays Tonya in the NBC series "Outsourced."

Pippa Middleton, the sister of the newly-crowned Princess Kate.
JadePenbrooke  6/28/2011
I just found out that "Pippa" is also Italian for masturbation. Not exactly an appealing reference for your little girl... might be better to stick with Philippa as a full name and to use Pippa as her nickname.
― Anonymous User  12/16/2011
When I first heard of the name Pippa, I thought it sounded sort of vulgar. So I looked it up. As it turns out, it's Swedish slang for "to have sexual intercourse," and is also Italian for a) "hand job" or b) "to snort cocaine." Not good.

Pippa Scott (born 1935 in New York City) is an American actress.
― Anonymous User  6/8/2012
In Swedish "pippa" is slang for having sex, so it would not be a good name in Sweden. Otherwise, I guess it could be a cute nick for Philippa.
Caprice  9/1/2012
Pippa is a vulgar word for masturbation in italian.
Eretria  11/29/2012
I'm afraid this is going to be very overused because of the attention the Middletons have been getting. And the whole Swedish thing really made me hate it! Plus it's too cutesy for a grown woman. Philippa is okay, but I'm not that excited by it. I prefer the form Felipa, which is the name of two of my friends.
Buneary  3/29/2013
This name is ridiculously cute.
blueeyesparkle  11/10/2013
Aspiration of the sound /p/ makes it hard to pronounce. But overall it's cute.
Reenie_12  8/2/2014
It's cute and I kind of like it, but it sounds like a naughty word even in English.
kvpp88  12/31/2014
Pippa is a really cute, pretty & sweet name for a girl. :)

I know a girl named Epiphany who goes by the nickname Pippa.
― Anonymous User  6/14/2015
Honestly I couldn't care less what it means in a different language since I'm not Italian, though I may be somewhat Swedish- I don't speak the language or plan on going there. I'm giving this name to my daughter who is to be born on Christmas :) I really love it and have loved it all my life! It's also the feminine version of my husband's name- Phillip! What could be better? So pretty and feminine.

Phillipa Soo, and actress in the Broadway musical Hamilton, uses the nickname Pippa.

The name Pippa was given to 92 girls born in the US in 2015.
HerculePoirot  6/15/2016
I like to say this name in a British, perky accent. It is also adorable in a raspy voice.
Blaxworth  6/17/2016
Sounds like the name of a spoiled British child who watches Peppa Pig all day and drives her parents crazy.
Acajou  8/9/2016
Sounds like the name of a pet.
Luvbug86  9/12/2017
OMG this name is really weird if it has such unlucky meanings in so many languages. Coming from Poland (where pipa is vulgar for vagina) and being a edish learner (where Pippa means to have sex with) it really does seem vulgar to me. But thinking more flexibly, I can't not see its cutesy when I put the vulgar associations aside and look at it from an English language perspective. It really does have a nice sound. It's a pity that it has such vulgar connotations. Although, I still think that outside of Poland/Sweden/Italy/wherever else it's so unlucky, it's a cute name, especially as a nickname. I like words with a few P's in them. They maybe don't sound good, but soooo cute.
mairinn  12/5/2017
Pippa was my childhood nickname (pronounced peep-pah) that my Italian father used to call me when I was a toddler. It was not derived from my name at all, and to this day I do not know where my parents got it from. But I think it's a delightful name.
