Bill is commonly known as a masculine and diminutive name from English origins. However, what you might not know is that this name wasn't associated with "William" until the 17th century. Initially, this handsome title was a surname that ended up making its way mainstream with a badass definition of "sword.” Parents seeking a short yet substantial appellation known across the globe may have just pulled the sword from the stone with Bill.
