“My husband wanted to name our son Brad after the character he played in the Rocky Horror Picture Show floorshow. But we decided against it because we didn't like the initials BM for obvious reasons. Since we were thinking about initials, we decided we really liked WM, and then settled on William -- not Bill, because that would be BM again.” -- Hilary
