Thread: Is William just too popular?

I think you should go with it if you love it and just think "We love it so popularity shouldn't matter". I've only actually met 2 William's and one goes by Will/Liam and the other by Bill. I think it's handsome and regal and classic. It sounds lovely with Sofia.
If you do decide to go for another, here's some names Will can be short for:
Willam -- very close to William but a lot more distinct
Wilny -- It's Native American and means "eagle singing while flying" I think it's cool

I think William is such a classic it stands outside popularity charts. It's like asking if John is too popular? If it's the name you love, go for it. And really, however popular it is, there will still be fewer Wills in his first-grade class than in a couple generations ago.
I agree: it's the perfect match for Sofia.
