Almost everyone knows Gilligan's Island. But can anyone tell me his full name?
I do not think "Little Buddy" counts!
Can someone possibly provide a reference with Gilligan's full name?

When the first season of "Gilligan's Island" was released on DVD in 2004, it included a short documentary called "Before the Three Hour Tour." That piece featured materials from Sherwood Schwarz's first attempt to put the show together that indicated Gilligan's full name was to be: "Willy Gilligan." Schwarz purposely dropped that from the finished product. So, in the official "Gilligan's Island" universe, we never know.

"Gilligan Whitehead" might be his name, according to another's of Sherwood Schwartz's TV shows.
At the end of A Very Brady Sequel, a movie based on The Brady Bunch characters also created by Sherwood Schwartz, Carol Brady reveals that her first husband was a professor lost on a boat. Dr. Whitehead, played by John Hillerman, says, "and my son Gilligan was first mate on that boat."
Bob Denver is his real name. My source is:
