Other Origin(s):Gaelic
Meaning:Resolute protector
Uilleam is a masculine name of Scottish Gaelic origin. Meaning “resolute protector,” it’s the equivalent of William in English. Living up to those very ideals are two noteworthy namesakes, Uilleam, Earl of Mar and Uilleam II, Earl of Ross. While the former is credited for the construction of Kildrummy Castle, deemed the greatest castle to have been built in 13th-century northern Scotland, the latter is considered to be a prominent figure in the Wars of Scottish Independence. With such patriots fronting the name, Uilleam is a heart-stirring choice for your little one, especially if you’d like them to wear their cultural heritage on their sleeves.
