  1. He is named after my daddy.

  2. I chose the name Phillip in honor of my father who passed away on my birthday almost 5 years ago. My father passed away 2 weeks after my wedding so thankfully he was able to escort me down the aisle but unfortunately he didn’t make it to see me have my children which is painful to think about but I know that he is smiling down from heaven at my two beautiful kids?

  3. We chose the name Phillip Thomas to honor both of our fathers, who are deceased. There are more than 20 boys in my family with the first name Thomas, so I love that itis his middle name.

  4. Named because it was a good solid name without being overbearingly masculine.
