can I ask what you call him? Do you call him William? Will? Willie? Bill? Billy?

There are so many nicknames for William. That's why I ask. Hope you don't mind... just curious

GREAT point!

I don't know anyone personally with this name, or with kids with this name... but it's still a good point! (I'm rooting for William Scott.... so, anything in my favor is awesome! )

He's not here yet (any day now!!), but he will strictly be William. I don't care for most of the nicknames for William and it's a family name for us, so we will use the full name. We also have an Elizabeth, which has a ridiculous amount of nicknames and she is just Elizabeth. My mom tried to see if she could call her Lizzie and I put a stop to that right away.

Re: Poll: which boy name do you like better?

actually, I don't know any Jacob's either.
and I do know 1 William.

but I'm older and I don't think my crowd reflects the current trends.

The William I know is also just called 'William'. Well, maybe not at home, I don't know, but his mother always refers to him as William.

My local news station just posted top baby names on Facebook...William is amazingly popular right now...the whole Prince William thing coming to life again. They're likely both to be VERY popular names.

Anyway, I like William Scott best

William is #2 or 3 on the SS list and has been in the top 10 consistently, but I really don't know too many Williams (and most are Billys and Bills) and none in my children's age group, so that's not really ever been a factor for me (obviously since my girls have "popular" names too )

It makes sense. My friend with a 'William' lives in England

Re: Poll: which boy name do you like better?

I voted for William Scott.

Jacob is a hugely popular name here (I have lost count how many Jacob's and Jake's I know who are mostly 19 and under) & I think it's been #1 on the social security baby name list for the last few years.. Everyone has different tastes & name rules but I tried to shoot for names that weren't too off the wall & wouldn't make my child end up being known as Stephanie C in school (using my name as an example). I know others out there share the names of my children, they aren't that unique, I just didn't want it to be 4 other kids in their class. Though I know some either don't mind about things like that or it may even be a draw for them to name their child something popular. So go with your own tastes.

I know this doesn't help a ton, but I like both names you listed. I love Jacob, even though it's kind of popular right now. William is just classic which is one reason I love it too. And I think it's great that you're naming him Scott after your DH's name, which is something we're doing as well. I think Jacob Scott sounds great too, if you decide to go with Jacob.

We were going to name our son William too, but since we wanted to call him Liam we are just going to name him Liam.
