'are both father and son named Philip? If so it is doubtful that they are jewish unless father died before his birth'

Some Jewish families do specifically name after the living to show respect; others don't name after the living but only after deceased people, also to show respect - so I don't think that the fact that the son had the same name as the father proves anything.
