"I always loved being a girl named Willie. I got teased, sure, but people always remember my name. They misspell it "willy" and I have always said...."no, the feminine version, ie"." Mar. 15, 2019:
"Good friend named Willie one of the kindest people I know gets slightly annoyed when people spell his name willy." Feb. 19, 2019:
"I have a female friend whose name is Willie. Although her name suits her completely, as she is a very open-minded and independent person, "Willie" is not an easy name to bear for a little girl as it does not have the trendiness or charm of Bobby or Joey. IMHO, this name is best used sparingly." Jul. 23, 2006:

"I am a women and most people mistake my name Willie Mae for a guys name because Mae is my middle name. When I apply for a job my name shows up as Willie. And when I am called in for a interview they ask to speak to Mr. Willie. After 50 years thinking about changing my name. When I attended college a teacher said I would never thought your name was Willie Mae because you are so pretty." Dec. 17, 2015:
"my name is Willie Ruth Mack. I have been teased about it to no end, but grew up and found it is not the worst thing that can happen, I have been nicknamed "Wil." I have been called Willie Mays, willie wonka, willy nilly. I like my name, no problem now." Dec. 4, 2010:
"It's hard enough for a boy, let alone girl, to cope with this name, yet if he or she is American, it wouldn't be so bad, at least if that person was older. Even though children think mostly Willy Wonka when hearing this name, it is highly unlikely a boy or girl or a grown/elderly man or woman with this name in America is ever likely to go to England, where the slang word ruined this name forever."

"Often used in the combination of Willie Mae when it was the 61st most popular baby girl's name in the USA in 1900 (Willie alone when used for boys ranked much higher in the same year in position no.14)." Apr. 23, 2008:
