Post Didja Ever Notice...
Hello Everybody!

Didja ever notice just how many characters are named 'William'?
  • Billy Fordham
  • Billy (Number 19)
  • Willy the Snitch
  • William the Bloody
  • Angel (real name: Liam, the Irish diminutive of William)
  • Mayor Wilkins (of medieval origin taken from the shortened version of William (Will) with the suffix "kin" added)
  • Billy Blim ("Angel" character)

Come on! Females get names like 'Aphrodesia' and 'Blue' but the guys only get variations of 'William'?

Buffy seems to have a thing for Williams. It seems reasonable that a girl that goes by 'Will' should fit the pattern.

Your crazy list maker,

Ronda Wilcox wrote about this in Why Buffy Matters, which is a very good read and I would recommend to everyone on the board.

Word of warning though; Ms. Wilcox is a Spuffy shipper and she's doesn't hold back when gushing over Captain Peroxide.

Of course, there's the three versions of Ken, including two slayers....
