"One of the coolest girls I have ever met is named Kip. It's her initials. Her real name is Karen but this chick is not a Karen. She's smoking hot. I wish there were more Kips in the world." Feb. 27, 2013:
"My husband and I absolutely love Kip, and we're going to give our baby boy this name in August. There are moments when I wish it were more popular, but I also like giving him a name that is both very unique and a proper old English name. We were so sold on it that we decided on it BEFORE we got pregnant, and no other names even come close. We love that it's one syllable and begins and ends with a consonent. Very strong and confident name with nothing but positive associations (for us, anyway)." Apr. 8, 2010:
"I have been called Kippy or Kip all my life and my real name is Christian. I have met about 4 others guys named Kip and for none of them was it their real names. I think two were named Greg.
It is a really cool and different name. Its funny, when people ask my name and say Kip in a bit of a southern drawl they always are right away asking 'What' like I had said something wrong.
I have lived with it for 33 years and I still think its kinda cool." Sep. 2, 2009:

"I named my son Kip in 1967, in Trinidad, Colorado. I think I got it from a soap opera. Had I known the name in 1965 my oldest son would have that name...I LOVE it, I hope my son does too !!" May. 11, 2020:

"My name is Kip... When I was young I didn't know of anyone with that name except "Kip Keino", an Olympian from Kenya. When anyone calls me Kippy I know that they knew me when I was in Elementary school. I love the name." Sep. 8, 2014:
"I really like the name Kipling, with a nickname of Kip. I was looking on here to see the general public's view of it before I name my son that. I guess nobody has a view yet though!! :)" Aug. 15, 2008:
