I think there was a singer named Billie Holliday. I like "Billy" better as a masculine form.

Billie is my name, I don't enjoy having it because people often mistake it as a male's name. So if more people can understand that it is both, a unisex name, perhaps I can like my name. Someday I will be famous somehow, and people can put me down as a bearer.

It is my name also, except for how mine is is Billi. I love my name, because it is different.

I don't really like this name for a boy, but I love it for a girl.

I have always connected this spelling with feminine usage. When I was younger, I thought this name was cute for a girl, but I've since changed my mind. It is a very youthful name that isn't going to sound great on an adult, and it is pronounced just like the likewise child-like Billy, so it's not all that feminine either. It would be better to name the girl Willa and call her Billie. The masculine variant has a bit of a redneck reputation anyway, and then there's the whole Billie Jean thing, so the feminine variant seems a bit hillbilly-ish as well.

As for the name itself, too redneck-ish. O_o

She's just a girl who claims that I am the one,
But the kid is not my son''
