            Ok I searched it for you since I was searching something worked related.
            William in Great Britain was eventually shortened to Will. Eventually, Will became Bill and that's the way it's been ever since.
            Who knows who does these things? For instance, anyone with the last name Miller is usually nicknamed "Dusty" because the name Miller derived from people who worked in mills that ground grain to flour. Who knows who starts these things. It becomes a trend for some reason and sticks.

              or

              When William of Orange ruled England, Ireland and Scotland, he was noted for leaving massive debts wherever he went. The proprietors all across the land, knew of his reputation and while they couldn't refuse the ruler of the land, they knew that after he left they would be laden with many bills to pay...and wherever he went the people would say, "Here comes bills."

                  My parents moved out of Pubjab when I was a baby , so I would not know. My Punjabi is dhaka start. When I talk in Punjabi it shounds like an Engine which misfires/misses beats frequently.

                      And it proves that if you add an "i" with a nick, it will change gender of one who carries the nick. Just like an "i" with Lus makes it a girl. (lol)
