"I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this name. My husband and I took 8 months to decide what to name our first son, and when my sister-in-law suggested Phillip, we loved itimmediately. The 2 people I knew with that name were very handsome, nice guys, so it had a good connotation with me. The name really fits him. He has always been such a litte grown-up, so the name doesn't seem too mature for him, even at 4 years old!" Feb. 1, 2007:
"This is my name and I do like it. Until recently I had only met a few other people with this name. Now, oddly enough, I work with three people who have the same name, but they spell it with one "L." As a public school teacher, I can tell you that this is not a common name." Aug. 19, 2006:
