Etymology of the name WILLIAM.
Meaning of the baby name WILLIAM.

  

WILLIAM.  The English form of German Wilhelm (q.v.), meaning "resolute helmet." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884). 

... Godwine, either personally or through his son, governed a great number of counties.  He took the side of the Saxons in a dispute between them and the Normans, and so fell into disgrace.  He was absent from court when a new Norman visitor appeared—namely, William II., the illegitimate son of the Duke, Robert the Devil.  William found Normans everywhere, at the head of the troops, in the fortresses, in the bishoprics, ad all received him as a sovereign; it seemed to him that the conquest of England was almost accomplished, and he returned to his country thinking that a royal crown was much better worth having than a ducal crown. (History of the Middle Ages, Duruy-Whitney, 1891)
