I like it but not sure if its right for a baby. What nicknames could we use, apart from the obvious will, bill(y), liam?

Think that's about it as far as nicknames go

Think you've covered the nicknames, but personally I think it's a lovely name for a baby and suits all age groups.

Lamb is adorable.

Thanks level. DH really likes it and I'm really struggling to pick a couple of names I really like.
Lamb is cute but not sure if I could use it.

This was my top name for dd if she had been a boy. Still thinking I would use it if we have a ds next. Love it. Think you've covered the nicknames though.
