tis a nickname for Philip or Peregrine (the hobbit?), not a name in its own right plus really, why would you?
Especially if he turns out to be a 10lb bruiser who goes on to be an enormous 6'5" rugby playing type - I mean really, where can you go from "Pip"?

Nope. Very dated imo. Sort of like a 'hunk' <boak> from an 80s' Jilly Cooper shagfest novel.

Also - it's what Derek Jacobi says about anything that happens in the Night Garden - "Isn't that a pip!"

Nice nickname. Silly given name

"My father’s family name being Pirrip, and my Christian name Philip, my infant tongue could make of both names nothing longer or more explicit than Pip. So, I called myself Pip, and came to be called Pip."

Opening line of Great Expectations.

I also think of the British exchange student in South Park based on the GE character. And everyone saying, "Shut up, Pip!" to him

My bil is Philip and I always call him Pip as a term of affection, so I like the name smile

I love the name Pip! Ignore those who say no, when you give your child a name, it takes on a whole set of different connatations. And who cares what others think - go for it!

I love the name Pip, makes me think of a nice wholesome child but with an edge of cheekiness/naughtiness.

It made my short list, we're going for Ted instead.
