Philip is a given name, derived from the Greek 'Philippos' , meaning "friend of horses". A common mistake is to translate the name as "lover of horses". From φίλος "lover" and ίππος "horse". While the literal translation, in Ancient Greece, the ownership of horses was available only to those rich enough to afford them. Since beauty, wealth, and nobility were all synonymous, "lover of horses" can also be translated as "noble". Philip has alternative spellings: Phillip, Philippe, Philipp, Felip, Felipe, Filip, Filippo, Filippu, Filipe, Filype, Phélyp, Phylip, Phillep, Pilib, Fülöp, Fulup, and has the diminutive Phil, Flip, or Pip .
