  • Philip is from the Greek name Φιλιππος (Philippos) which means "friend of horses", composed of the elements φιλος (philos) "friend, lover" and ‘ιππος (hippos) "horse".[2]
  • Twelvetrees is possibly a habitational surname and describes somebody who lived by a group of twelve "somethings". Another possibility is that it originated from a now "lost" village called Twelvetrees, but no such place has been found in any gazetter of the past three centuries. There is another suggestion that the derivation of the name is from 'Atte-well', which over the centuries became Twelve.[3]
