Where did the name "billy" in Saw come from? (the doll on the TV's)

Asked by bluedoggiant (648points) May 3rd, 2009

I have watched the saw franchise countless times, I am familiar with the whole plot, but on the internet, it claims the name of the doll that’s on the TV’s in the “games” is called “billy”. I have never heard this name mentioned in the actual movie. By any chance, which saw did this come from?

Never heard it in movies either, maybe someone just gave him that name.

The name was given to him by his real-life creator James Wan, who is the director and co-writer of Saw.

Wikipedia 4tw? Although that means the above fact is most likely false. As for the reason why he gave it, /shrug.
