In NL the Dutch version of the name, Willem, has been abundant, most probably in honor of the 1st Orange-Nassau of NL, Willem the Silent.

Queen Philippa of England gave birth to Princess Isabella in 1332. She may have named her first daughter after the Dowager Queen Isabella, the consort of King Edward II. However, Isabelle was also Philippa's sister's name.

Prince Ludwig of Bavaria (the future Ludwig II) was born in 1845. His parents, Crown Prince Maximilian and Crown Princess Marie, intended to name the child Otto. However, the Prince's grandfather, King Ludwig I of Bavaria, insisted that his grandson be named after him. They shared the same birthday, August 25.

Quote from Princess Alice of Hesse and by Rhine on the name Elizabeth after the birth of Princess Elizabeth of Hesse:   
"Louis' mother is to be godmother, because it is customary here to ask someone of the name of the child to receive to stand on the occasion [of her christening]. We like Elizabeth on account of St. Elizabeth [of Hungary] being the ancestress of the Hessian as well as the Saxon House." (20 November 1864)

In the Dutch language it is Willem, instead of William.

The same you will notice in the non royal world. For example my fathers 3rd name is Maria, named after an aunt I believe.

In the german speaking countries esp in the catholic areas (Bavaria, Franconia and Austria) Maria as a male middle name was very common.
Many people changed their names to Mario in the seventies to somewhat severe the ties to the religious aspect, but most didn't bother.
