additionaland flow in usage, but William has remained popular pretty much ever since it came into play. It comes from the Germanic Wilhelm, which breaks down into “will/desire” (wil) and “protection/helmet” (helm). Oddly enough, the name became wildly popular in England after the Norman invader William the Conqueror stormed in and took control in 1066. Since then, the name’s never really left common usage. It became so popular, in fact, that rumor tells of a Normandy Christmas event hosted by Henry the Young King in the twelfth century where 110 knights named William gathered for dinner and refused to allow anyone into the room with them unless they were named…you guessed it, William. In the US, it’s been in the top 20 since at least 1880, and barely dropped out of the top five until the ’60s and the top 20 in the ’80s and ’90s. It’s currently moving back up, with some thanks likely owed to Prince William of the British Royal Family. Popular nicknames include Will and Bill, but the trendy Liam is another good option.

additionalFrom the Germanic name Willahelm, which was composed of the elements wil "will, desire" and helm "helmet, protection". Saint William of Gellone was an 8th-century cousin of Charlemagne who became a monk.

It was later borne by three other English kings, as well as rulers of Scotland, Sicily (of Norman origin), the Netherlands and Prussia. Other famous bearers include William Wallace, a 13th-century Scottish hero, and William Tell, a legendary 14th-century Swiss hero. In the literary world it was borne by dramatist William Shakespeare (1564-1616), poet William Blake (1757-1827), poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850), dramatist William Butler Yeats (1865-1939), author William Faulkner (1897-1962), and author William S.
