    Wills as a nn for William?

    I have always wanted to use the name William (after my dad) if we had a boy, but as of late I feel like I have met a million baby Williams!

    That being said, my dad goes by Bill--which not even he likes! The nickname Will doesn't really flow with our last name, and I'm not crazy about Liam.

    But another nickname was brought to my attention today-- Wills.

    What do you think of it? Is it too much of a nod to the prince? Too out there? Or just right?

    Big sisters are Violet and Georgia.

    I do think of the prince because I'm really into the royals but to me that's a good association. And it's not much of a stretch at all, not when compared to many of the nicknames out there. The nice thing about William, though, is that when he's older he can choose a nickname he likes from one of many- Will/Wills, Liam, etc.- or none at all! William is popular but classic; it will always be lovely!

    Oh, it's really cute. And I don't think it's a problem.
    I'm an Italian teenberry!
    I have synesthesia.
    Apologies for any grammar/spelling mistakes. I try my best.
    Also, I'm bad at naming boys. You'll almost never find me discussing boy names.

    I think if you give him a middle name that starts with "S" then I think you could get away with calling him Willis.
