If you consider your baby a prince, why not give him the name of two famous ones: the prince married to the Queen of England, and the Disney prince who stole the heart of Sleeping Beauty? It’s also the name of several European kings and the TV-famous psychologist, Dr. Phil (birth name: Phillip Calvin McGraw). It’s old-fashioned, masculine, and in case you were wondering which spelling is more popular, it's in a dead heat with single “l” Philip.
Disney Baby Names
In “Sleeping Beauty,” Prince Phillip hears a girl singing in the forest and is intrigued. When he finally meets her, he immediately falls in love, and she feels the same for him. It’s Princess Aurora/Sleeping Beauty who runs off without revealing her identity. Will they ever find each other again? Of course! They’re each other’s one true love, and even the evil Maleficent’s curse on Aurora can’t overcome Phillip's determination.
