Most bland name on earth.

Personally, I prefer the nicknames Will/Willy for William. However, the nicknames Bill/Billy are more appropriate for the rare given name Billiam. Someone already submitted this kree8v name incorporating the nicknames Bill and Billy. So if I named a boy William, I would only use the nicknames Will and Willy. Or if I named him Billiam, I would only use the nicknames Bill and Billy. It all has to do with the letters beginning on the names. I hope this makes sense. This is a strong and handsome name for a boy, though!
Cute!

I personally, never really thought much of the name. I always thought of that "Kill Bill" Movie. That was until I started listening to band Tokyo Hotel, where, the lead singer is called Bill. I personally love the name now - the name 'Bill' suits him. It's short, and sweet. Nothing too over the top.

Mostly obnoxious men are called Bill. Think Bill O'Reilly, Bill Donoghue, and Bill Bryson, just to name the ones I can think of right now. Besides, I don't like the nickname at all.
