Phillip is the Anglicized form of Philippus and was first used in Greek and Latin. The name was derived from the Greek word "Phillipos," with "philos" meaning "friend" or "loving," and "hippos," meaning horse. This can be translated to mean "friend of horses" or "lover of horses." The name itself has historic ties to royalty and Biblical connotations as it is the name of one of the twelve apostles of Jesus.
