Gender: F Meaning of Philippine: "lover of horses" Origin of Philippine: French, feminine variation of Philippe

Philippine would be taken as an ethnic identification rather than a name in the U.S. Better try Philippa, though if you don't mind eternally correcting people, Philippine can make an interesting alternative. Pippa can be a short form of Philippine as well as Philippa.
