On my DH family tree he is descendant from lots of Williams.

We like the name William but are looking for variations to the name, and if they are usable. DS is Charlie and DD is Tilly

What about Wilbur - which would honour 2 family members in one go - William and Burt / Bertie.

How usable is Wilbur? Any other variations to William

Wilbur is great. I would pinch it myself except I have a Wilfred.

Wilbur is cute.

Liam is another "normal" non nickname sounding variation.

Ds2 has taken to calling ds1 who is a William "Smellington" but that's probably not going to make it to your short list grin.

Bill / Billy are the other "normal" NN for William

Smellington :D I may not add that one to the list.

Liam was my first choice but DH said no.

I can't really use Bill or Billy with a Tilly ;)

Willem is quite nice, shall mention to DH
