Nickname for William

DH and I just found out that we are expecting. We are already considering names. One boy name that we both like is [name]William[/name]. Any ideas for some nicknames beyond will/y or bill/y? Thanks.

[name]How[/name] about [name]Liam[/name], the Gaelic form of [name]William[/name]? Very handsome name or nickname.

[name]Liam[/name] is my favourite [name]William[/name] nickname.

[name]Wills[/name], [name]Willem[/name]

If you’re moving beyond [name]Wills[/name] and Bills, you gotta go with [name]Liam[/name] … which is great but pretty popular right now.

Definitely [name]Liam[/name] if you want to move past popular [name]Will[/name]. I know [name]Liam[/name] is also popular, but right now it seems like every boy I meet is named [name]Will[/name], [name]Drew[/name], [name]Jack[/name], etc. I love [name]Liam[/name]!

I have to concur - [name]Liam[/name] is great.

I love [name]Liam[/name]. [name]Will[/name] is okay, but it’s not my favorite.
I think [name]Liam[/name] is such a wonderful nickname, and will definitely set him apart from the other [name]William[/name]'s/[name]Will[/name]'s/[name]Willy[/name]'s. I despise the nickname [name]Billy[/name]. It’s a long story so I won’t even try to explain it.

Definitely go with [name]Liam[/name] :slight_smile:

I like [name]Liam[/name] as others have mentioned but I do like [name]Will[/name] too. Not willy and definitely not bill or billy. But [name]Will[/name] is a nice, strong nickname imo.

I love [name]Will[/name], too. [name]William[/name] is so handsome on its own as well.

I love [name]William[/name], nn [name]Will[/name], too, and would use it in a hearbeat if it didn’t rhyme with my name, [name]Jill[/name]. Darn!

Take care! :slight_smile:

It’s been said, but [name]Liam[/name]'s a love! There’s also [name]Wylie[/name].
