Diminutive of Willem, contracted form of Wilhelm, Dutch, German
"resolute protector"

Wim Origin and Meaning

The name Wim is a boy's name meaning "resolute protector".

With a sound that brings to mind at once "whim," "vim," and "win," this is one Dutch boys' name with serious potential for use in the English-speaking world.

Film director Wim Wenders brought this to our attention; it certainly has vim and vigor.
