    Names to honor Phiona and Phillip?

    A lady who was named Phiona in an abstract honor to her father Phillip found out she's expecting and want's to name the baby something that sounds relatively similar or derived of her name or her fathers. A P or Ph isn't necessary, but if you could involve it in the name that would be up her alley.

    She's considering Perrin if it's a boy and Ophelia for a girl, but wanted more input so I figured I'd ask you guys. Only name she's given as a no go is Phillipa. Thanks for any input!

    I think Philip, nickname Pip, is lovely. What about Filippa or Philippine (Pippa, Pippy) instead of Philippa?

    I think using a Ph- name would the best way to keep the tradition.

    Philomena
    Philomel
    Philomela
    Phoebe
    Phaedra
    Photine
    Phyllis
    Phyllida


    Phineas
    Phoenix
    Phoebus
    Phelan
    Phelix (Greek spelling of Felix)
    Philibert
    Philo
    Phrixus
    Arabella, Thibault, Sophia, Alfred, Eleanor, Rémi, Charlotte, Achille, Olivia, Clement, Elizabeth, Frederick, Maud, Benedict, Adèle.

    Also, there's the -ippe part of Philip that means "horse". Other names that have this are: Alcippe, Aristippe, Chrysippus, Gylippus, Hippocrates, and Hippolyte for a boy and Aganippe, Alcippe, Cidippe, Cydippe, Dioxippe, Hipponoe, Hippothoe, Menippe, Xanthippe, and Zeuxippe for a girl.

    Names that contain "ph": Adelpha, Alphonsine, Amphinome, Amphithoe, Amphitryon, Aphelia, Aphrodite, Aphrotrite, Capheira, Daphne, Dauphine, Delphine, Dymphna, Epaphroditus, Ephyra, Epiphany, Eriphyle, Euphemia, Euphrosyne, Gustaphine, Iphigenia, Iphianassa, Iphis, Josephe, Josephine, Memphis, Nephele, Ophelia, Ophira, Orphise, Persephone, Raphaelle, Sapphira, Sappho, Seraphina, Séraphïta, Sophie, Sophronia, Stephanie, Symphony, Theophania, Theophila, Tryphosa, Zephyr, and Zephyrine for girls

    Alpheus, Alphonse, Amphictyon, Amphilochus, Amraphel, Aphrodisius, Aristophanes, Arnolphe, Asaph, Bardulph, Bellerophon, Cephas, Cephus, Christopher, Dalphon, Daphnis, Elihoreph, Eosphoros, Eliphalet, Eliphaz, Epaphroditus, Ephah, Epher, Ephraim, Gandolph, Gryphus, Haphaestus, Hasupha, Humphrey, Iphitas, Japhet, Jehoshaphat, Jephunneh, Joseph, Ludolphe, Marphurius, Menulph, Metaphraste, Morpheus, Murphy, Neophytos, Nicephorus, Onesiphorus, Ophir, Orpheus, Pandolph, Porphirios, Potiphar, Ralph, Randolph, Raphael, Riphath, Seraphim, Shaphat, Sheleph, Shephatiah, Shepho, Sisyphus, Sophocles, Sophonie, Stephan, Theophilus, Theophylact, Tryphine, Xenophon, Zephaniah, Zepho, Zephyr, Ziphion, and Zophar for boys

    Also, a neat inversion of the name Philip is Hippophilos.

    This includes any of the variants as well. I excluded names with "f"s, but if I were to use the letter, I would use "ff" in a name. Names like Griffin or Ffiona (which I'm guessing is a variant of your friend's name) I think work best because it does place emphasis on the double letter. And if you replace the "ff" with "ph" it keeps the balance of the name. So Griffin becomes Gryphon which has the same amount of letters. There's also Irish and Scottish beauties that contain "bh" which makes the "f" sound.

    Personally I agree with sugarplumfairy, that the best honoring would be done with a "PH" in beginning of the name, girl or boy. But for "ph" names that are outside the box:
    Girl:
    Sophia
    Delphine or Delphina
    Aphrodite
    Daphne
    Iphigenia
    Josephine
    Boy:
    Alphonso
    Christopher
    Ephraim
    Humphrey
    Memphis
    Murphy

    Since she likes "p" names like "Perrin" she could consider:
    Peregrine
    Peridot
    Pearl
    Perlina
    Pauline
    Pegeen
    Penelope
    Paige

    Paladin
    Paul
    Preston
    Perry
    Prescott
