I would assume they wanted to get the "new beginning" suggestion in there.
And on a practical note, "Adam" is a name that isn't commonly nicknamed.
"William"s tend to be Will, or Willy, or Bill, or Billy, or Liam, or
something, and that might have ended up being a Problem. Or not; I'm just
hypothesizing. :^)
