Background: The surname Phillips and its many variations are believed to be patronymic surnames, which mean they were originally derived from the male first name Philip or Phillip. Adding an "s" to the end of Philip or Phillip causes the name to mean "son of Philip" or "son of Phillip." The website Behind the Name states that the first name Philip or Phillip is from the Greek: "Philippos", a compound of "philein", to love, and "hippos", horse. Hence, "lover of horses" or "friend of horses." One of the first recorded spellings of the Phillips surname with a "Ph" is shown to be that of Alicia Philippes, which was dated 1273, in the "Hundred Rolls of Huntingdonshire", during the reign of King Edward I, known as "The Hammer of the Scots", 1272 - 1307.

Variations: Phillips, Phillip, Philip, Filippus, Phillipus, Phelipe, Philippes.
