Thread: Philadelphia?

    Philadelphia?

    Never thought of it as a name before but saw it in the list of Greek names and I kind of like it! I have lots of personal connections to the city (the one in the US) so it would have meaning for me. What do you guys think? Nickname ideas? Pippa maybe?
    Felicity ~ Calista ~ Claudia ~ Beatrice "Betty" ~ Carlotta ~ Millie ~ Cora ~ Audrey ~ Violet

    Calvin ~ Jude ~ Miles ~ Oliver ~ Roscoe ~ Benjamin ~ Leo ~ Adrian ~ Isaac ~ Colin

    I'm not in the camp that thinks 'meaning' trumps other factors. I think Philadelphia is an awful mouthful for either a boy or a girl. Sorry.

    Yep. Philadelphia sounds ridiculous on a person, sorry. Also, it immediately brings to mind cream cheese, Phillies, Flyers, and Will Smith all rolled into one. I like the suggestions of Delphia and Delphine.

    I think it's pretty but be wary as in the UK it's the leading brand of soft spreading cheese...
