Nickname[edit]

"Le Gros Bill" saving nickname for future use. -Djsasso (talk) 22:20, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

I couldn't find any description of a folk hero called le gros Bill, so I noted the 1949 movie as the source of his nickname. Both explanations seem to have a lot of support, but I doubt there is any definitive evidence. John FitzGerald (talk)
