Can vs. Will vs. Stand Alone?
I love the name Will/Willie. However can it stand on its own? I dislike the name William. I am not a fan of Wilbur. I kinda like Wilson but doubt I will use it. Other name suggestions?
The Top Baby Name is...
Sorry to say I don’t really think it can.
I don’t think it can either--sorry
Yes! I think it can! Why use a long name when you know you are just going to shorten it?
I thinking absolutely can stand alone. Not everyone called John is actually named Jonathan.
Sorry... I think it absolutely can stand alone... (darned autocorrect.)
Yes, but John is a stand alone name and has been for centuries. What you’re going to call the baby isn’t the only consideration--someday he may want to sound more professional on job applications, etc
Will is a very professional sounding name. I really don’t get all this "professional" name stuff. It’s a name! I personally think it’s fine! :) Will Smith, Will Ferrell, Will Arnett...I know they are actors, but still it works for them!
Will sounds just fine for a professional.
I don’t think it stands alone well. My son has a classmate named Will and people have called him William. Sometimes he corrects them and sometimes he doesn’t. I think it’s just too much trouble to correct them all the time.
I think Will can stand alone. Liam is also a nn for William and people use it as a stand-alone name all the time. GL
I think Will can stand alone! I love that name!
Wilkes or Wilkinson
It certainly can! I also love nickname-type names. For instance, my husband and I both love Jenny but not Jennifer, so our daughter is Jenny Carolina. Will is a nice name! Go ahead.
Thanks everyone! I will keep searching for longer names for Will!
Will can DEFINITELY stand on it’s own and people use the name on it’s own all the time. I would seriously ignore anyone who says otherwise, as it’s a common thing to use Will on it’s own so I’m not sure what universe they’re living in.
William is a great name imo, but I really do love Will on its own. I really dislike all other names such as Wilbur and Wilson, they sound like old men to me.
