Also Piedmontese: -- fieul ëd Filip II ëd Macedònia
Also Belarusian, spelled Філіп :
Also Sorbian:
Here in Poland, Filip is a tad overused, and I don't really like its sound.
I agree that Philip looks better, but acknowledging the fact that not everyone uses English pronunciations and spelling, Filip is nice too.
There is a Muse song called Fillip.
In Romanian I think it is Fi-LIP.
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.
In 15th-century Bulgarian legend, the name "Filip" connoted a man who had the gift of prophesy. Common techniques included the spinning of dogs to indicate prosperity or misfortune.
At the risk of spamming the board, I *have* to comment on the comment about the 15-century man who spinned dogs: What?!?
