Meaning & Origins

Probably the most successful of all the Old French names of Germanic origin that were introduced to England by the Normans. It is derived from Germanic wil ‘will, desire’ + helm ‘helmet, protection’. The fact that it was borne by the Conqueror himself does not seem to have inhibited its favour with the ‘conquered’ population: in the first century after the Conquest it was the commonest male name of all, and not only among the Normans. In the later Middle Ages it was overtaken by John, but continued to run second to that name until the 20th century, when the picture became more fragmented.
6th in the U.S.
Dutch and North German: 1. nickname from Middle Dutch or Low German cloec, clo(o)c ‘deft’, ‘skillful’, ‘clever’. 2. habitational name from a house distinguished by the sign of a bell, Middle High German glocke, Middle Dutch clocke. In some instances this may also have been a metonymic occupational name for a bell maker or bell ringer. 3. nickname from de Kloke ‘the wise one’, from Middle Low German kloke ‘wise person’.
