At the time of adoption, the letters stood merely for 'The Catholic Fraternity', and it was not until later that they were given a secret meaning.

 U.S. Catholic Bishops - New American Bible
Paul's letter to the Christians at Philippi was written while he was in a prison somewhere (Phi 1:7,13,14,17), indeed in danger of death (Phi 1:20-23).
Much of the letter is devoted to instruction about unity and humility within the Christian community at Philippi (Phi 1:27-2:18) and exhortations to growth, joy, and peace in their life together (Phi 4:1-9).
The other verses in Phi 4 and Phi 1:1-2, are variously assigned by critics to these three underlying letters, which an editor presumably put together to produce a picture of Paul writing earnestly from prison (Phi 1-2), facing opponents of the faith (Phi 3), and with serene joy advising and thanking his Philippians (Phi 4).

 FIRE - Phi Beta Kappa Can Do Better
Earlier this week, FIRE wrote Phi Beta Kappa a letter encouraging the organization to join the fight against censorship and repression at some of America’s most prestigious colleges and universities.
Although FIRE has received no formal response from Phi Beta Kappa, the organization has made several comments to the press indicating that it is not particularly interested in addressing the problem of speech codes at its member institutions.
So far, Phi Beta Kappa’s response to the FIRE letter seems to imply that undertaking to fight censorship at its member—or prospective member—institutions would be a task on a scale that Phi Beta Kappa is unprepared to undertake.

 FIRE - FIRE Letter to Phi Beta Kappa Secretary John Churchill, November 29, 2005
FIRE is pleased that Phi Beta Kappa has demonstrated its intent to stand behind this commitment, as evidenced most recently by its concern over George Mason University’s decision to rescind a speaking invitation to Michael Moore.
In its July 28, 2003, open letter to college and university administrators, OCR stated that “the offensiveness of a particular expression, standing alone, is not a legally sufficient basis to establish a hostile environment under the statutes enforced by OCR.” See First Amendment: Dear Colleague Letter (attached).
We urge Phi Beta Kappa to stand behind its demonstrated commitment to academic freedom by insisting that its member institutions respect the free speech rights of their students and faculty.

 Pronouncing Phi
One noted that in the UK "phi" was always pronounced to rhyme with "pie" but that some Americans at conferences pronounced it "fee".
When it comes to letters like Π, Χ, Φ (written ΠI, ΧI and ΦI respectively), the misunderstanding comes from the pronunciation of the letter 'I' which in English rhymes with fly but in Greek is pronounced EE.
The letter Φ is always pronounced PHEE in Greek, and it does not differ if followed by a vowel or a consonant.

 The HooK: LETTER- Phi Kap imploded
As a former UVA student who was both good friends with many brothers in Phi Kap and a member of the IFC during the fraternity's first re-colonization attempt, I found your article both misleading and one-sided [October 20: "Greek epic: UVA legend 'Phi Kap' folds"].
When I talked with brothers in Phi Kap after the vote, informing them of the documents presented to us and the requirements they had to fulfill, they told me no one had ever communicated these issues to them.
On the other hand, the IFC and the average fraternity man supported Phi Kap, and I personally regret that the house is no longer our neighbor on Madison Lane.
