Liam

will helmet, protection
ORIGIN: German
POPULARITY: 5
The Irish short form of William, Liam is in a league of its own and far more popular than its counterparts, Will or Bill. The name first hit the top 5 in the US in 2013 and is equally popular in Canada, although it has been popular in Britain for far longer. Not bad for a name that was little heard outside Ireland until the 1800s. It has pop ascendancy thanks to One Direction’s Liam Payne, rock-and-roll cachet from Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and movie-star cred from Liam Hemsworth.
