That's it really - would you say the name Pip is more a girls name or a boys name? Thanks!

I'd think boy - short for Philip.

LimpidPools Sun 29-Oct-17 10:21:28

Definitely a boys name - would assume short for Philip.

Girls are Pippa.

Boy short for Philip.

Boy. I know a few Pips, all boys and men

LouiseBrooks Sun 29-Oct-17 10:24:04

Boy. A girl would be Pippa.

Boy. I used to go to school with a lad and this was his nickname

Girl - because I listen to The Archers which has a female character called Pip.

My cousin Phillip was shortened to Pip as a child. Not sure about now. He's in his 20's.

Boy. I'd think dog first though.

Boy, although the only Pip I know is a woman.

Either. I wouldn't know till it was clarified

BewareOfDragons Sun 29-Oct-17 10:27:27

I would assume Girl.

dramallamakarma Sun 29-Oct-17 10:27:28

Girl (Pippa) or dog (sorry)

I've only known female Pips, short for Philippa.
