Can I have you opinions on whether you think the name Pippa will become more popular over the next year due to the whole royal wedding thing and Pippa Middleton?

It probably will. Personally I don't like it.

Oh, I love the name "Pippa" though would put "Philippa" on the Birth cert.

Never thought of the royal wedding connection, but now you say it perhaps there will be a little influx of them.

Surely it won't make it to the top ten, though? Everyone will have forgotten in a couple of years or so...

Not sure whether it will become more popular, maybe a bit.

I like Pippa, as nickname for Philippa.

Might become a bit more popular, probably not much though. I get the impression that the media are more enamoured with Pippa Middleton than anyone else.

I love the name though.

I do quite like it but i would never use it because of her royal - it is a good name for a dog though

Not in Greece - it's a slang term for 'having a wank' there!

I think quite possibly yes, I rather like Pippa, but absolutely hate Philipa!

Philippa means 'lover of horses'.

Just thought I'd throw that in grin

My friend has a Philippa nn Pippa, and she's not impressed that it may become so popular!

My friend Philippa was shocked to read recently that it is one of the fastest growing names in popularity. I've no idea where she read that though. I think it's a lovely name, especially with Pippa as a nickname (my friend is Flipper; less nice...)

This is my sisters all time fav baby name. I have never come across someone else who likes it!

I have heard of a couple of babies been born recently called Pippa. I know a 4 yr old and and 40 yr Pippa also. I think it has started to become more popular since Pippa Middleton.

I like it but prefer Polly.
