I voted for Thompson. I like that it's just a little bit different, but very familiar. And it also sounds great with Jillian & Meredith.

also voted for Thompson- I think William and Jillian are too similar- they are a little bit difficult to say together.

Thompson is perfectly familiar and just unique enough... I've never heard it used as a first name and I love the idea! Of course, I'm usually a fan of first-name-usable surnames. :)

It's one of those that I'd imagine adorable on a baby/little kid and yet strong and distinguished for an adult.

I think it sounds wonderful with Jillian and Meredith as well.

p.s.
Might Thompson William be an option?? I like that better with Thompson than Jaros (so they're not both "different" names) and it's still using dad's name.
Thompson William Reece just rolls off my tongue...

William and Jillian rhyme, as do their nicknames, Will/Bill and Jill. Unless you're going with the Liam nickname, I would count William out.

Thompson is a very handsome name.

I agree that William and Jillian have too similar a ring. I voted for Thompson.

As a Radiohead fan (who isn't?!) I adore the name Thom. Rock on.
