It will be hyphenated though.

So far I have come up with

Bill y-Gareth

it would be silly to say goats and gruff wouldn't it?

MrsTicklemouse Mon 04-Aug-08 17:30:26

i like billy-joe too

i think the seond name needs to be one syllable

tweeni Mon 04-Aug-08 17:39:24

Wouldn't the initials BJ be a bad idea?

Billy-Bob ... not sure about that.

I don't know who that is ... Is it a bad person to have the same name as?

msappropriate Mon 04-Aug-08 17:45:33

Billy wizz?

tweeni Mon 04-Aug-08 17:46:33

Wizz hmm

Billy Ray Cyrus see the mullet
Even he isn't hyphenated

tweeni Mon 04-Aug-08 19:07:34

So he was around at a time when bad hair was the fashion. Any other reason why it would be a bad idea to have the same name as him?

Billy-Elliot (?)

billy whizz - is slang for speed/amphetimines
billy elliott - getting get made fun of at school
billy ray - just don't go there!

billy-joe was the name of that girl that were clubbed to death (alledgedly) by her foster dad, Sean someone in the 90's

billy-bob and billy-jean - just say NO

In fact I can't think of one good reason to want this <<ahem>> chavvy <<my opinion don't shoot me>> name

Use William and let him choose. An ex boyfriend and his wife wanted Billy, gave him William and he has always refused to be called Billy, preferring Wills. Please don't lumber the child with such a name.

William Bailey Brown or William Poncey Middle Name Brown could be a anything in life.

Billy-silly hyphanated name is going to do rather less well for himself, hindered by his name before he even gets an interview/job offer

Yes I think you have to give him the choice.

Name him William Donald or William Edward etc then he can be known as Billy-Don or Billy-Ned. (If you must grin)

would never do billy-elliot. i don't get what's wrong with billy-ray though. it would be william-????? on his birth certificate.

Sorry, can't think of anything sensible.

But then I don't think Billy-hyphenated something is particularly sensible! But obviously it's up to you!!!

tweeni Mon 04-Aug-08 19:27:50

I didn't realise Billy was such a disliked name.

Twinkie1 Mon 04-Aug-08 19:29:02

It just sounds a bit chavvy especially hyphenated with something!

moondog Mon 04-Aug-08 19:31:01

Don't do the hyphenated thing Tweeni.
Twillhave teachers guffawing in classrooms for years to come.
Unless of course you live in Alabama?

LaDiDaDi Mon 04-Aug-08 19:31:34

I think that Billy alone is fine (although I do prefer William) but Billy-something sounds awful.

tweeni Mon 04-Aug-08 19:38:09

I don't really care about what teachers gossip about in the staffroom. It's a family tradition to have hyphenated names. The other first name I like is Anton but not sure what would go well with it and I'm a bit worried it will sound like Ant and .....

A family tradition? How far back? I'm finding it hard to think of hyphenated boys' names
