    You can do what you like, it's your baby :rofl: It you tell people he's called Liam they'll never even know William is on the birth cert! Although I'm sure that doesn't matter! x

    I know a baby that is called Liam but his full name is William. I think it's clever! Everyone shortens William to Will or Bill.:winkwink:
