Pip-pee. I think this name is adorable and would love to find a good name to use this as a nn for. Not big on Penelope or Phillipa. And have trouble picturing an adult Pippi even though I have seen Rosewood. I do like it hyphenated ex. Pippi-Rei or PippiJoe if using it as a first name. And being named after the strongest girl in the world gives it charm along with meaning quirky and rosie-cheeked. Been on my name list for a long time; total name crush. maybe I will use for #3. It seems like a #3 kinda name. Like initials P.J. My DH actually loves this too.

This. I too love Pippi Longstocking, but we have French relatives so this is a huuuge no-go for us. I like Pippa though, or Astrid (for Lindgren).

I like this name - it's quirky, and I like the Pippi Longstocking connection and the meaning - but where I live the most common word for urine is "pipi"...
