It would also be special because not only would it make her the third out of 3 great-grandchildren this year to bear Philip's name, it would also make her the first girl to be named after him.
I personally think that it's a lovely name, but I honestly very highly doubt it will happen. Philippa is Pippa Middleton's full name, and while it doesn't seem like the couple have ever been particularly close with her, it's probably not an association that they want to be making given the animosity they currently seem to be feeling towards her sister (additionally, given how close Kate and Pippa are I can't imagine they're Pippa's favorite people right now, either). If there wasn't that barrier I do think that it would be a fine way to honor him, and Archie and Pippa is a really cute sibling set of names.

What animosity towards Catherine?

Besides, it's pretty clear that Philippa would be a tribute to Philip and have nothing to do with Pippa.

I think Alice and Diana will be part of the names, or Alicia.

Pippa, Philippa Matthews is not at all related to Prince Philip. Her sister Catherine is his granddaughter-in-law. The name Philippa would honor Prince Philip, not Mrs. Matthews.

It is sad that the girl will not meet her remarkable great grandfather.
I've mingled family girls' names with some alluding to Philip including other 'horse lover' meaning names:

Eliana Philippa
Eldoria Frances
Ellice Diana
Aliza Filippa
Eloyce Philana
Ellie Rose
Riana Harriet
Elyce Rosalind

One of the tabloids suggested “Lily” may be a strong contender for the new baby, in honor of ‘Lilibet.’ I quite like it.

But I think most people who hear the name would instantly associate it with
Philippa Middleton Mathews instead of Prince Philip.

Oh Yes! Lily Florence (aka Lilyflo) is sweet for a granddaughter - take my word.

While I personally think Lily is a beautiful name, I don't think it'll be the name used. I honestly don't believe they'll choose a name "in honor" of anyone other than potentially one or both of their mothers. I expect they'll follow the format they used for Archie's name and choose something that they simply like followed by a middle name that might have a connection either to Meghan or to one of their own mothers. Potentially a combination of the two like the much talked about Doriana for the middle name with a first name that they've simply chosen based on something they like. I don't particularly expect something old-fashioned or anything with ties to the BRF. Nor do I expect something newly trendy. If Zara's daughter weren't named Mia that probably would have been one of my top suggestions. As it stands, I can easily see something along the lines of Maya, Olivia, Amelia, Ava, or even Lark.

I like Maya. Reminds me of another very strong woman with a voice. Maya Angelou.

This is quite true. However, Prince Henry and Meghan could declare Philippa is in honor of Prince Philip and Queen Philippa of England.

Alice could be considered a tribute to Philip--since the baby would be name after Philip's mother.

I guess it depends on if you follow them or not. I know people who don't even remember Kate has a sister. But to be fair they also didn't know the Queen had other kids too.

We rarely hear Pippa called her full name, so unless she is called "Pippa" then I don't think it will be an issue. But my guess that is not on the list anyways.

I never saw Archie coming, so I won't begin to guess but I can see Meghan wanting to honor someone like her grandmother Jeanette and of course I can see Diana honored as well.

Considering the circumstances with Philip having just passed, I'd say very few people's first association would be Pippa Middleton if Philippa is used.

Eugenie and Zara Phillips used Phil's name for their babies, but it was a second name.. I think it woudl be a nice nod to him to use it as a second or third name..

Oh, I don't think they'd do it as a first name at all. Definitely in the middle if they'll use it.

No way will Morgan be in the mix - if only to prevent any unintended association with Piers Morgan.

Laurel or Lauren could be used. Laurel is a derivative of Laura.
