My first thought is 'What you talkin' 'bout Willis?!'
If you're cool with everyone saying that to him for his whole life, go for it! I think it's funny, but I'm sure some people wouldn't enjoy it.
I like Will but would use William if it were me.

What you talkin bout Willis?
Sorry, that's all I think of... But I'm from the generation that grew up watching it on tv. Your child's generation will have no idea what that's all about!
I do prefer William though.

The saying doesn't really bother me - DH bothers me more because he's taken to saying 'Willlly' with a silly mocking tone

Love Will as a shortened version but I don't think I could get over the "What you talkin' about Willis" thing. That was what I thought of the instant I read your post.
What about Willem instead of William? Wilson is cute too, or I know it might sound weird but I actually like Willoughby.
