[name]Pippa[/name]. I just can’t even fathom a [name]Piper[/name] on anyone above the age of 5. [name]Pippa[/name] feels a little more suitable for a human to me.

I feel the exact opposite lol [name]Piper[/name] is on my list too, and while I could see [name]Pippa[/name] as a cute nickname, I could never see it as a first name. I feel silly even saying [name]Pippa[/name] out loud.

Pippa - it’s so cute. Granted, Piper is cute too, but it makes me think of pipes (any kind of pipe: water pipes, copper pipes, steel pipes, lead pipes, bagpipes, pan pipes, organ pipes, or pipe as in what some people smoke out of.) And I agree with Youssarian that it’s kind of childish.

EDIT: Also, on a more serious note, some may associate it with Jochen/Joachim Peiper (Peiper prn like Piper), who was a senior-ranking member of the Waffen-SS and assistant to Heinrich Himmler. Peiper was involved in the murders of numerous prisoners-of-war, and he took a commanding role in the Malmedy massacre.

What about [name]Penelope[/name] or [name]Phillipa[/name] nn [name]Piper[/name] or [name]Pippa[/name]?

I have always detested [name]Piper[/name]. I don’t understand the appeal at all.

I relunctantly voted for [name]Pippa[/name] even though it’s just as cutesy and childish as [name]Piper[/name]. I don’t see these names aging well.

Ok, so I am going to say that I immensely dislike [name]Pippa[/name] because to me it is the Swedish verb meaning, “to have sex.”

[name]Piper[/name] nn [name]Pippa[/name]. [name]Pippa[/name] is only an nn for me, to stand alone it’s just not complete enough.

[name]Piper[/name] seems to be a little more substantial to me, whereas [name]Pippa[/name] feels more like a nickname. I like both a lot, but [name]Piper[/name] got my vote.

[name]Pippa[/name] feels much more stylish to me while [name]Piper[/name] does evoke an image of a pipe!

[name]Both[/name] are cute, but I like [name]Pippa[/name] better and I prefer it as a nn for something more formal like Philamena or [name]Phillipa[/name].

I like both but they are very different. [name]Pippa[/name] to me seems more classic and ‘normal’. I nanny a child who is known as pippa from her name phillipa. I love [name]Piper[/name] and think its more trendy,

I like them equally but I agree with @mummanyc that they both feel very different. I would personally do [name]Piper[/name] nn [name]Pippa[/name], but maybe that’s just me, lol. I voted for [name]Piper[/name] because I think you could use both but I have a hard time seeing [name]Pippa[/name] nn [name]Piper[/name], if ykwim…

I see [name]Pippa[/name] as a nn, not a full first name like [name]Piper[/name]. Not that it makes any difference but [name]Sarah[/name] [name]Palin[/name] has a daughter [name]Piper[/name], and I think she’s adorable(this does not reflect on my opinions of [name]Sarah[/name] [name]Palin[/name] herself…). :slight_smile:

I feel like [name]Pippa[/name] isn’t even a real name

[name]Piper[/name] [name]Palin[/name] is what made me like the name even more. I think she is adorable too.

[name]Pippa[/name], definitely. [name]Piper[/name] feels trendy to me.
