From William the Conquerer to Sweet William to Will.I.am., he’s a name with many hats. William is going to be very much on everyone’s minds this year, as we watch to see what the crown prince calls his first child. If it’s a boy, I’d be a bit surprised if the name isn’t on the list below.
Someone in the Olivia post brought up a good point: common names are well liked for a reason. They roll off the tongue, they appeal to everyone. Interjecting with less common names by definition will not have the same level of acceptance. But if you’re here reading, perhaps there’s one or two that will pique your interest, or that you and your partner can agree on. At least, that’s my hope.
Brothers: Ambrose, Albert, John (not Jack), Peter, Robert
Sisters: Annabel, Hermione, Imogen, Petula, Verity (going Britishy here, can you tell?)
