  • I think it's cute and unusual but not in a bad way. Just call him Will :)

  • Old names are back! Will you call him Will? Then I'd say it's TOTALLY doable. That's my husband's Grandpa's name, so we considered it as well. We want to use the name Grace for a girl, though, so we thought we should probably avoid having a Will. :)

  • He might get picked on a little but kids find all kinds of things to pick on other kidsfor no matter what your name is..
