First Name Directory - Starting with P




This site is dedicated to maintaining a database of first names from all over the world. We are still working to add all meanings to the names and sort them by gender, ethic and other behavior.

Most names come from the European and Arab area, especially italian, spanish, french and german firstnames.


Philip
Philip is a given name, derived from the Greek Φίλιππος (Philippos, lit. "horse-loving" or "fond of horses" ), from a compound of φίλος (phílos, "dear", "loved", "loving") and ἵππος (hippos, "horse"). In Ancient Greece, the ownership of horses was available only to those rich enough to afford them. Thus, "lover of horses" can also be understood as "noble".[citation needed] Prominent Philips who popularized the name include kings of Macedonia and one of the apostles of early Christianity.
Pelle
Pelle is a Scandinavian masculine given name.
Pontus
Pontus is a Swedish male given name.





In the data base are, apart from modern and traditional first names also American, Arab, Germans, English, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Dutch, Northern, Russian, Scandinavian, Slavian, Spanish, and Swedish first names.
