    The current debate is the use the letter "F" or "P" in the local name of the country.

    I think if we go for "F" it will bring us to the origin of the name and that is King Philip or Felipe in Spanish. But using "P" is more of our inculturation since there is no "F" in the ABKD.

    I want to retain the use of Pilipinas rather than Filipinas.

    Yes, there is an F in the official Filipino alphabet... there had to be, or we'd have Pernando Poe Jr or PPJ.
    And we actually have 28 letters, not 26.

    Filipino alphabet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I think the one you know is from the old Florante song which is actually already outdated.
    In addition to F, that one didn't have a C, Q, V, X, & Z...

    ...if so, we'd have Kory Akuino, Perdinand Markos, Pidel B. Ramos and Bibian Beles.

    What i mean in the original alphabet is prior to spanish era. Fernando and Fidel are spanish names. Even the term "universidad" is in spanish.

    For me Pilipinas is for Philippines. Filipinas is Philippine Women.

    Hmm it just hit me. There is also no J in the old abakada.

    So Fernando Poe Jr (FPJ) will become Pernando Poe... Chunior? Unior? (there's no CH sound in abakada).

    So FPJ will become PPU.

    Ang baho.

    P.S. I must admit though, Filipinas feels like you are talking about women from the Philippines.

    P.P.S. I've seen some countries call us Philipinos because of Philippines.

    P.P.P.S. Did you know many countrymen call their own country differently from how the world calls them?

    The Japanese actually call their country Nippon.
    The German actually call their country Deutscheland.
    The Chinese actually call their country Zhongguo.

    And please please PLEASE do not call our country P.I.!!!!
