] Aside: Is there a consensus in the group about what Lizzy would call Darcy if she were to call him by his first name?
] Fitz sounds awfully funny to my mind. William's better, but not acurate... Someone answer, this "vexes me terribly."
Depending on whom you talk to, the consensus spans from "Mr. Darcy" to "Mr. Sexy-Butt". ;-) So, there's a wide range. I think the general thing was the more private the situation, the more private the name. "Mr. Darcy" in formal settings--when there were others around; "Darcy" when there were sisters and other close family/friends; and some term of endearment (e.g. Dear or Darling) when it was just the two of them, or perhaps his Christian name, or some derivative--Billy Bob. :-D
