  • "We just named our son Will. His father, grandfather and great grandfather are all Williams so I thought the nickname Will would set him apart. It's a good, strong name for a boy and I like it better than Bill." Feb. 5, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "Will Smith the African-American actor rules! The name is much cooler than either Bill or Willie, the first conjuring up dads and grandfathers of today and the second conjuring up men or women of the grandparent or great-grandparent era." Jun. 17, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named one of our sons Will. Great name we think. When he was young I found an old record by Patti Page, " I want to go skating with Willie". It was fun listening to that." Apr. 3, 2008: Report as inappropriate
