Meaning:Descendent of Will
Williston is a masculine name for inspiring your little one to stand against life's challenges. It's rooted in the German and English favorite, William, meaning "helmet of protection" or "resolute protector." The "ton" ending gives this rare variant the meaning "descendant of Will." Baby will have their pick at role models with this name, from storytellers Shakespeare and Faulkner to business magnate Bill Gates. Williston is also a stone's throw from Willis, as in the Die Hard star Bruce. Wherever their adventures take them, your Williston will fight tooth and nail for those they love!
