This is one of my FAVORITE names when and if I have a little boy this is my first choice it has a lot of meaning to me.
i love this name
written by imbtrthanyou, June 29, 2008
my husband and i decided on this name almost as soon as we found out i was pregnant. everyone but my dad hated it, but now my son is nearly two and i think they're ok with it. :) the only downside that i've found is that it is often misheard--people constantly think i'm saying either ian or leon. it's only occasionally mispronounced (liAM is the only one i've heard, with the "a" being pronounced as the "a" in "ant".) and sometimes misspelled (liem instead of liam). i get a lot of compliments on it, and while it's not completely unheard of, i haven't found many people with it. i've also had a lot of people tell me they've never even heard of it. my son pronounces it "meenum."
Cute name!

I think Liam is such a cute boy's name. My boyfriend's name is William (but he goes by Bill), and he said if we ever had a boy he'd like to possibly name him William too. I'm not a big fan of the whole idea of naming children after their parents, so we compromised on Liam since it is a variation of William.

Strong willed warrior
written by Levi Groomer, June 26, 2010
My son is 2 when found out he was going to be a boy we finalized on Liam and found one site that had the irish meaning being a strong willed warrior. 1 week later we discovered that Liam would be born with a heart defect "hypoplastic left heart" the last 2 years he has lived up to his name. been through 2 major open heart surgeries and just last week a stint removal. we have been blessed and our Lord gave us this name. Now we have just found out we will be have a girl in December and searching for another blessed name.
