Origin of the name WIPPO.
Etymology of the name WIPPO.
Meaning of the baby name WIPPO.

  

WIPPO.  Old German name, probably of Norse origin, meaning "like a whip," from vippa (to move rapidly).  It has the diminutive form Wiebe.

    The names signifying woman are attended with more difficulty and doubt, owing to the manner in which men's names intermix, sometimes from the same apparent root.  Thus there are several which appear to be from Ang.-Sax. wîf, Old High Germ. wîp, Mod. Germ. weib, wife or woman.  But among the ancient names there are some that are those of men, and Förstemann thinks that the root of weban, to weave, intermixes.  Or, I should rather suggest, Old Norse vippa, to move rapidly, Eng. "whip."  Wippo was the name of a mythical Frankish king, (Grimm's Deutsch, Myth. 277.). (The Teutonic Name System &c., Ferguson, 1864)
