While I don't love the name per se, I do appreciate it and "get" why it's attractive to some people. I think it's a nice, uncommon choice.
Willa is a cute nickname, as is Willie.
I think Wilhemina Jane is lovely - but I see how it could also be sort of filler-ish. Here are some other suggestions, though I think I like it best with Jane, actually:
Wilhemina Kate (again, you have the filler feel..though I think it's very nice)
Wilhemina Rose (filler?)

I love Wilhelmina's fresh, clunky feel. She's elegant, aristocratic and demure. Yet with Wilhelmina's fun nicknames; Willa and Mina she youthful and fun. I think Wilhelmina is a great, classical choice. I think a softer, lighter middle name would be great.

Wilhelmina isn't a name I would choose, but I can definitely appreciate the strength and elegance of Wilhelmina. I imagine Wilhelmina as as an intelligent, classy woman who isn't to be messed with. If you want to avoid the middle name sounding like filler, stay away from the one syllables.
To give you a few ideas...Edward ▵ Samuel ▵ Theodore ▵ James ▵ George
Helen ▵ Georgia ▵ Rose ▵ Mary ▵ Iris
Ciarán ▵ Blaise ▵ Fionnbharr ▵ Remus ▵ Perseus
Jane ▵ Alice ▵ Niamh ▵ Minerva ▵ Guinevere
