What do you think about Billy or Leo for a boy?
I find boys names particularly difficult. Suggestions welcome.

Leo is great.
Billy as a full name, not so much.
Some other short boys names:

Think of him when he's 40. Leo is more mature than billy.
Posted 19 February 2013 - 02:15 PM
Billy could always use Bill as a more mature nn or vice versa. Personally, I prefer Leo, but whatever fits with your last name

Billy is more a nm rather than a full name, a friend just had a William who she has asked be known as billy. Could you use it that way?
Leo is nice, is there a middle name to go with them?
I totally agree boys are harder to name, although if I have a girl I'm sure I will be saying the same thing about girls. I think it's just hard to make a final decision

I like both.
Posted 19 February 2013 - 02:40 PM
I don't like either as a full name.
What about Leon or Leonard then Leo as a nickname only?

DS is William and is called Billy - he can change it when he gets a older if he thinks it sounds too young.
On the plus side, despite the fact that William is always in the top 10, there has never been another one in his class at school.

I think Leo is a great name! Billy - I'm not real keen, though I don't mind it as nn for William.

Nicknames can be real names too! I dislike William, but think Billy is a great name.
Love Leo too. My DH vetoed both of them sadly!

I prefer Leo to Billy, what about Liam

I'm not into Billy as a given name.
Leo is great. Other good ones: Liam, Reuben, Samuel, Hamish, Miles, Declan.

I like Billy. I tend to like nickname names. As PP said, he can be Bill when older if he wants to sound more mature.
I think Leo is fine too.
Posted 20 February 2013 - 07:02 AM
Leo is great. Not so keen on Billy, even as a nickname.
Posted 20 February 2013 - 09:18 PM
I love Leo, my Leo is a Leopold, but mostly gets Leo
I like Billy too, but more as a nn for William
