Thread: Philadelphia?

  1. #1

    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?

    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.

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

    It's quite a mouthful, but not much more than Philomena (which I do prefer). I think it can work. The cream cheese connection would make it an unfortunate choice for a chunky girl. I think if you don't live near the city, cream cheese might come to mind for most people. Or the Tom Hanks film, which I have never seen, but I know it has to do with AIDS. I do think there's a lot of teasing potential.

    My best friend lives in Philly and it isn't a very beautiful place imo. And it is generally a lot of things most people find questionable, high crime rates, a lot of empty buildings & storefronts, ect.

    It could work though and of course, like most names, a beautiful & dynamic girl could pull it off wonderfully. Nicknames like Pippa, Pip, Della, Dellie, Fifi, Philly, ect are cute options.
