If baby makes you whinny with laughter from day one, Philly will make for a lovely fit. This gender-neutral name is rooted in the classic Greek favorite, Philip, and means "horse lover." Philly's lookalike, filly, is another term for a young female horse. As baby learns to take the reins, this majestic name will bring out their gregarious side. They'll be social and warm-hearted but never afraid to stirrup trouble! Some famous Philips for baby to aspire to include one of Jesus' Twelve Apostles, actor Hoffman, and the most honorable of the Gallagher clan in the TV show Shameless.
