  1. We chose the name based on my husband’s now deceased cousin. It matched the middle name perfectly and we feel his cousin is smiling.

    Billy is only a few days old and lives to cuddle, have boob, and watch tv with daddy. He loves his puppies and kitties, but also his fluffy bunny.

  2. I love this name because it has good meaning meaning.

  3. We picked Billy because it’s the name of my grandpa and my husband grandpa. We also have a lee theme with our kids and it just fit perfectly.
