Female variations of William or Walter?

I am not pregnant but was just thinking. For the next one we would want to honor DH's father. No problems if its a boy, but if its a girl what female variations of his name could we do?

    There's Wilhelmina. Maybe Willa. Even Wilma could work- maybe too flintstoney though.

    I had a great aunt named Waleska which is close to Walter but I don't recommend it. I would stick with Wikllow or Willa or another "W" name.

    I know two women named Billie.  Both are in their 50s, but gorgeous women.  It makes me like the name.
