The Phillipp family can find its origins within the landscape of Medieval France, particularly in that coastal region once known as Normandy. Their name is derived from the ancient Greek name Phillippos, which is composed of the elements philos, meaning love, and hippos, meaning horse, and indicated a person who loved horses.

Phillipp Early Origins



The surname Phillipp was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where they held a family seat as an aristocratic family at Marigny. Conjecturally, this family may be descended from Phillip, the Count of Namur, but there have been many Kings of this name including Philip I, King of France, King Philip Augustus, Philip the Bold, Philip of Valois, or Philip of France, Duke of Burgundy, and many saints, bishops, Dukes, and other nobility and place names.
