Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

I think it is avoidable, definitely. Families are usually the people that start nicknames, make sure your family knows not to start that one!

I think Philip looks a bit cleaner and more masculine.
I know a handful of Philips who all go by Phil. When it comes down to it, as your child gets older it's going to matter what he prefers. There's a good chance he'll prefer to go by Phil if you choose that name, but if family and everyone else calls him Philip as a child, it might not happen.Lillian Elizabeth 6.16.13
