What goes with Walter?

Not sure whether it's a boy or girl but we pretty much have a girls name agreed.

We can't think of anything suitable for a middle name for Walter, our surname begins with a K and DD has the middle name of Arabella so we would like something in keeping/along with same lines.

On our list last time was George Hugo if DD had been a boy but I'm not sure Walter Hugo works?

Any thoughts?

I immediately thought Mitty. But Walter it's just such a dated, dreadful old-fashioned unattractive name. Please think again.

Op, I also think Walter and Walt and very cool names. Like the Walter Thomas suggestion also life your Walter Hugo, the film is only just out, but I'd go for it.

Just think it through as a name is a big deal ( i know you know that)

Poppy and Walter.......makes me think of the wimpy one from Dennis the Menace.

Cannot imagine an 8 yr old called Walter or a 15 yr old called not sure if I would have dated someone called Walter (shallow)

Poppy and Archie

Poppy and Charlie

Poppy and Harry

Poppy and Ed. smilesmilesmile

Thanks for your thoughts everyone, seems a name with extreme opinions grin

Yes initials that nearly spelt wanker wouldn't be so good. George is just getting too popular now though. Same with Archie, Charlie, Harry.

I do like Teddy as a nn but am not crazy about Edward as his official name.

If you like teddy as nn have you thought about Theodore as full name? The meaning is nice too - gift of god smile

BNmum Sun 31-Mar-13 22:12:33

Theodore Walter would work too
