IIRC, the last time we had this debate, 50 years ago, the Willys people themselves pronounced it "Willies". To keep it G-rated, as in "I've got the willies".

I don't know that we will ever get an agreement on how to pronounce it just like nobody can agree on the origin of the name "Jeep".

The annoying thing to me is when I see someone spell it "Willy's".

No, it's mine! :whacky:

John North Willys, last name pronounced Willis. But we all call it a Willy's! Funny, went to a dealer a while back , asked to see the 2016 "Willis's" that just came in, the poor soul had no idea what I was asking to see. My wife and I said to brush up on the Wranglers he was selling... Said I'd check with another place that really was into the vehicle I was interested in.
