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.
