William "Liam" vs. Liam

My husband and I want to honor his grandfather, William, by naming our first son after him. We originally decided on the name William with the nickname Liam, but now we are considering just using the name Liam. What do you think?

The Top Baby Name is...

I think if the purpose is to honor Grandfather William, it makes more sense to name him William with the nickname Liam. Otherwise, it doesn’t feel like William is being honored to me.

I think if you are going to call him Liam anyway, which is the Irish version of William, that you should just name him Liam.

Liam is used wayyyyyy too much and personally not fond of the name at all. William nn Will is wonderful!

Liam is much better than boring Will and I think if you use William people use Will more often.
