I adore this name for some reason. It sounds wholehearted, humble and earthly. One of my friends was going to name her son this but she changed it to Brayden last minute. I much prefer this name to names like that. It's not modern or trendy, it's just a classic, cute name.

Reminds me of an obese little child.

As my username suggests, there's a fictional character named Billy Joe Cobra, who was based on Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong. However, this is just his stage name with his real name being Baruch Cohen (implying Jewish heritage).

He is the supporting protagonist of the show, "Dude, That's My Ghost!" (from Jan Van Rijsselberge, the creator of "Robotboy") and was once a super famous, rich pop-star living the luxurious Hollywood lifestyle until a mysterious cause of death caused him to become a ghost.

He still acts as if he's alive, though he can't be seen by people not wearing his stuff, and resides in his mansion that was inherited by his [distant] cousins, the Wright Family- who are just an average, normal family from a Midwest town. Billy struck up a bro-tastic relationship with the son, Spencer, and tries hard to help him fit in with the posh and lavish society and uppity elite. He also uses his past connections to aid Spencer in becoming a famous filmmaker/director.

I know one guy called Billy, and that's his actual name, not William. It's a nice name for a little kid, but I can't help but think it might look a bit silly when he gets older.

I like this name. It means "Determined Protector" and sounds very brave and manly. I would name a child William, and call him Billy for short.

Didn't know Billy was a nickname for William. Like the commenter Julia, I don't know how you get Billy from William.
Luvbug86  8/2/2017
I knew a William that went by Billy, too, and he was an average boy - very nice, not super smart or super dumb, friendly, outgoing, and athletic. That's the kind of person I think of when I hear this name.
Billy is also used for girls in the South - or used to be, anyway (e.g. "Billy Jean"). I think Billy is a cute name for a girl or a nickname for a boy.

I really like the name William and the nickname Will but I really don't like the name Billy. It's partially because I didn't really like the few Billys I've met but it just seems like a stupid name to me.
swordsmanoffire  3/10/2009
I know a Billy. Well a William but he goes by Billy. He's actually really smart and nice. Kinda the opposite of what you think of when he you hear the name Billy. See? Stereotypes aren't true! But please don't name your kid Billy. William is a way cooler name, a Will is a better nickname.
D.Scott  2/22/2009
It's kind of cool. But then again I kind of think of a fat kid when I hear it. MIXED EMOTIONS ABOUT THIS NAME :)
