Willet is a masculine name of Old English and French origin that has plenty of meanings for baby to enjoy. While it translates to cute nicknames for William, like “little Will” or “son of Will,” it can also translate to “little strong-willed protector.” If you want to encourage baby’s fierce, protective spirit from the start, this name is sure to do the trick. Willet may also come from the French name Ouellet, meaning “mattock,” and connecting your little one to a pickaxe-like tool that is vital in tree planting or landscaping. This visual can symbolize baby’s importance to your life and family and help them embrace their sharp edges. If you’d prefer to connect them to the natural world, Willet is also the name of a shorebird that can be found throughout the west and southeast coast of North America. Whether baby prefers to be one with the earth or take to the sky, Willet will give them plenty of inspiration.
