    Re: Patrick William looked out the window

    Is William his surname or his middle name?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'm assuming it's his middle name. I've never seen it as a last name (except when the first name is Prince).

    Williams
    is a last name.

    But let's see what Al says.

    I have to change it to Williams. I always thought that famous composer was John William until this thread opened my eyes.
