The boy's name Willard, meaning "strong desire," is of Old English origin. Much like Amott, Arnold, and Cuthbert, this two-syllable name was wildly popular from the turn of the twentieth century until the late 1970s. Its vintage vibes make it ideal for some affectionate variants, from Will and Willy to its German variant, Willihart. Plus, it's entirely possible that the name’s curious meaning will make an appearance during potty training. Here's hoping!
