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!~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3
