I think that it is a very cute nickname when you are a young boy; when you are a teenager it is funny and memorable; and when you are an adult, it is time to switch to William.

Famous bearer is Willy Brandt (born Herbert Ernst Karl Frahm), Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany from 1969 to 1974. He received the Nobel Peace Prize.

This dreadful nickname will forever be associated with the male organ. Billy or Will would be much better.

The kid will be teased and teased and teased. Don't even go there. Off this name, right now! Off you go!

Don't people know that this is slang?
It refers to a male's penis for crying out loud. It's just as bad as naming a kid 'Dick' or 'Jackin'.
Seriously.

In my country Willie or Willy is just a normal name for man or woman. A bit like John or Janet.
Willie is my mother's name. Short for Wilhelmina.

I've known several Willy's, but never once associated it with (nor heard it associated with) male genitalia until I came on this website. So I think it's a fine nickname.

This is dreadful even as a nickname! I would never name my kid something that is vulgar slang.

I really love name Willy. It's the name of my favourite character in Tim Burton's movie 'Charlie and the chocolate factory' Willy Wonka. I would give my son the name Willy even though I live in Slovenia where there is the more popular variant Vili. But still I would name him Willy Edward- I think it goes together perfectly. As the feminine form I think it would go Willow (her nickname could be Willy) as much as I like Lilly and other forms.

I like the name Willy, it's my dog's name. I've never heard of it being a slang word. It's a shame, there's nothing wrong with the name itself.
