I've recently fallen in love with the name William. I think it's a strong, classic name, but also cute for a baby. WDYT of it? And, which nn do you like better, Will or Liam?

Thanks

Howabout using "William" all the time? He'll certainly stand out among all the Bills, Wills, and Liams he'll run into. Almost no-one uses the full name day-to-day, and it really is such a nice name.

I really like the name William but it didn't sound good with our last name (too many w-l sounds). And obviously my favorite nn is Liam but I prefer it as a name on its own.

I like William, Liam and Will. Liam and Will could be names on their own, though, too. All the William's I've known have gone by Billy as a nickname.

I like William and Will, love Liam, but don't like Bill, Billy or Willy, so the possibility of the last 3 would keep me from naming my boy that.

Its ok, I would never use it, its just too old fashion for my liking, plus I know too many characters on TV with that name and it reminds me of them..

I do think its cute though, and I love the NN Will. I don't like Liam for a NN, I prefer it as a name on its own.

I love William, I like Will or Billy but I really dislike Willy and I would hope no one ever called him that. I like Liam too. If I named my son William I would only call him William or Will.

I really like it and both nicknames. If I had to pick one nn though I would go with Liam.
