    How to get the nickname Will?

    Hi all,

    I love the nickname Will but I am not a huge fan of William. We have been thinking about Willis, but is that too weird as a first name?
    I would love any suggestions on other names that could lead to the nickname Will!

    Thanks!

    I really like Willis! It's a very handsome name!

    My first thought was Wilder!

    Others:
    Wilbur
    Wiley
    Wilson
    Wilford
    Wilton
    Wilmer
    Wills (Maybe even Wells?)
    Wilbert
    Wilkes
    Wilkinson
    Willard
    Wilhelm

    If you don't like any of these you could even go for a Wal- name or just a Wi- name. Or you can use a Wil- name as his middle and he can go by that.

    Hope this helps

    There are lots of Wil- names!

    Wilfred
    Wilkie
    Willet
    Willoughby
    Wilmer
    Wilmot
    Wilson

    I think my favorites are Wilkie and Wilson. Willis is a perfectly good first name, but I personally can't divorce it from the catchphrase in Diff'rent Strokes.
