Meaning & Origins

Altered short form of William, not used before the 19th century. The reason for the change in the initial consonant is not clear, but it conforms to the pattern regularly found when English words beginning with w- are borrowed into Gaelic. The nickname ‘King Billy’ for William of Orange is an early example from Ireland, which may have influenced English usage. It is bestowed occasionally as a name in its own right.
244th in the U.S.
English: habitational name from North or South Kelsey in Lincolnshire, so named from Cēol, an Old English personal name, or alternatively from an unattested Old Scandinavian word, kæl ‘wedge-shaped piece of land’, + ēg ‘island’, ‘area of dry land in a marsh’.
