Are Edward and Billy (William) together a bit 'English Kings'?

A lot of names have been used by English Kings.

Given a lot of people's point of reference for Edward is Twilight (very annoying) I really wouldn't worry about people making the kings connections. It's just not the average persons mind set.

They're classic names and sound great together!

More likely to think you're an Archer's fan!

YY think most people will think Excellent Adventure rather than Britannic Majesty
(Have one royal and one plebeian son grin)

I personally prefer Edward and Reuben but that is because I don't like William and the associated nicknames Willy or Billy.

You would not believe how thrilled Dad was when that film came out !
Bill and Teds excellent adventure !

I think its more of a truly excellent adventure dude than kingly.

My dad is Bill , ( William ) his brother Ted ( Edward )
I don't see a problem .

If you called him Billy I wouldn't see any connection. Even more so if Edward ends up becoming an Ed or Ted.

Trying to decide on DC2 - a boy - our first is Edward. Have a favourite uncle I would like to name the second after- Billy. But Daniel is also in the mix. And I love Reuben as well but DH isn't keen.
What do people think? Should I go for a more modern/less old fashioned name for number 2?
