The title also alludes to the idea of great things to come or things that are expected to come but aren't there yet. Pip is an orphan living with his sister. Through his encounter with a criminal (Pip helps him) pip is expected to get a great inheritance. “Expected” is the operative word here. Pip is also expected to become a "gentleman” of standing rather than a simple blacksmith.
