Name Meaning

English (Lancashire and Yorkshire): perhaps from an unrecorded Middle English personal name Wippe (Old English Wippa, of unexplained etymology but apparently attested in the Isle of Wight placename Whippingham and in an Anglo-Saxon field name Wippan hoh ‘Wippa's hill-spur’). Alternatively, perhaps from Middle English whip(pe), wipp(e) ‘whip’, either as an occupational name for someone who used a whip, as corporal punishment or to drive or control animals, or a nickname for a lively, quick-moving person, or someone generally in a hurry.
