Mum asks how she can keep the name of her great grandpa alive for future generations to come.
Sharing on MoM answer the woman asked, “Translating the name William to a girls name?
“I was wondering if I can get some help with a name. My husband and I are thinking about having another child and if we do we want to keep a name going.
“My Great grandad, pop and dad all had the name WILLIAM.
“It would of stopped with me but I ended up marrying a William lol.
“So to keep that name going we want to call our next kid William, but we are unsure on how to translate it into a girls name just in case.”
One mum shared, “You could try turning William around – Mila, Miall, Milli.”
Another suggested, “Willow Billie.”
And another said, “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.”
Some other great suggestions were, “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!”
That’s a tricky one. For a girl I would probably use it as a middle name.
What would you do to keep the family name going?
