I am wondering if there is an Orthodox saint with the name of William? I haven't been able to find one, so I thought I'd ask.

Thank you.

Though I find it hard to believe, I checked this page, which is the most complete list that I've seen online, and it doesn't list a William.

EDIT--Though now checking the Orthodox England site, I see some Williams listed...

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

Actually, there are at least five of them. Have a look here (PDF file): http://www.allmercifulsavior.com/Calendar/St.%20Hilarion%20Calendar%202003%20Part%202.pdf, p. 26.
