Other Origin(s):Dutch
Meaning:Resolute protector
Not to be confused with British Will, Wil is a German and Dutch name for boys. This sweet and concise title is short for names like Willeke and Wilbert, ultimately derived from Willihelm. Though this three-letter appellation may seem unassuming, it carries the honorable meaning of “resolute protector.” Don’t underestimate its humble appearance—Wil is worthy of a natural-born leader.
