so I just posted something about how I hate boys names because the I never get the same feeling towards that I do girls’ names. so I was thinking of ways to get over that mental block and it came to me. [name]Even[/name] though I can’t get a warm fuzzy feeling towards a boy’s name, I can get that feeling towards an association with the name. so…my dad’s name is [name]Philip[/name] nn [name]Flip[/name]. and now that I think about it, I love the idea of naming a boy after my father. While the name doesn’t send me into a tizzy like [name]Cecelia[/name] or [name]Beatrix[/name] does, I do get excited about imagining my son being held by his namesake.
So I wanted to ask y’all about your opinion of [name]Philip[/name]. And the nickname [name]Flip[/name], I’ve never heard anyone call my dad [name]Philip[/name] or [name]Phil[/name]. Also I was called Flippee my entire life for a penchant for flip-flops that started early on, which is something that my dad and I always bonded on.
Would you spell it with one L or two? My dad spells it with one, and what about the nn? I can’t decide how I like it on not, on someone who isn’t my dad.
