Ask your question

  • Willa or Willow would be nice. I have a friend that called her baby Winter as well.

  • Maybe Willa? I think it’s really short for Wilhemena. I’ve known some girls named Billie.

  • I think the name Willow or Wilhelmina sounds lovely and close enough to William

  • You could try turning William around – Mila, Miall, Milli

  • Willow Billie

  • You could name your daughter William and call her Billie.
    You could also use it as a middle name.
    Or even change it altogether to something similar like Willow.

  • Willamenia ?

  • Wilandra

  • Willa, Willemina, Willamette, Wilma and Wilhelmina.

  • A nickname for William is Bill or Billy, so perhaps Billie for a girl? Or Willow, Willa, Wilma, Wilda, Willamette, Willemina, and Wilhelmina. Apparently there are many girls called William so you could always use that, be unique!

  • Wilhelmina is the only one I can think of

  • Willamina is a direct translation to girls name. A nick name could be Winny or Minny?
    Or you could go for something unrelated like Willow.

  • The only one I can think of is Wilhelmina.

  • Wilhemina?

  • Even if it’s not official, you could always call her a nickname like Willa etc
