Honestly, there hasn’t been a year when William wasn’t popular. From William Shakespeare to William the Conqueror (the Duke of Normandy, who brought the name to England in 1066), no fewer than four American presidents and three British kings have had the name William. The eldest son of Princess Diana, Prince William (the Duke of Cambridge) is a royal who grows more popular with each year.
