liam

origin: Irish

meaning: Strong-willed warrior

This shortened, Gaelic version of William (a rare case where the back half of a name catches on) is quickly rising up the charts, no doubt helped by actor Liam Neeson and the general trend towards Irish names. It only hit the charts in ’74, and since then has been rocketing up -- in the last 14 years it has risen 285 positions and doesn’t look to be going anywhere but further up the charts. A caution: Such a quick rise is often followed by a quick fall, and this name is definitely in danger of acquiring an overly trendy feel.
