I have a one month old named William and I'm really regretting the choice. Whenever we tell someone his name, they always ask what we will call him. Hello I just told you his name is William. I didn't say Billy. It's so annoying and I hate that he will deal with this his entire life. Next, despite telling everyone his name is William, no one will call him William. They all just go ahead and say Will or Billy. I'm so aggravated. I especially didnt think people would just call him Billy on their own since that's an entirely different sounding name rather than just the shortened version. Anyway, I don't know many little ones since this is our first so i'm wondering if there are other boys from his generation going by the name William itself. For some reason, I was under the impression that there were a lot of little Williams out there right now.
Im so over this name. It doesn't even sound good to me anymore. I am seriously considering changing it. I need reassurance if you have any! We cho I because we wanted a traditional name and so many names were already used by family. I didn't give it enough thought though. At this point, I'm not even sur I can stand Will and the name William itself is starting to sound very old to me. Ugh.
