Comments and insights on the name Thorvald: | Edit

Just bestowed this as a middle name for my son, and people are going bananas over it. I certainly expected it to raise eyebrows, but the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

Personal experiences with the name Thorvald: | Edit

This was my grandfather's middle name, and his father's middle name as well. However while my great grandfather's first name was Hans, in the Danish American community where he lived at the time, it was common to go by ones middle name, so he actually went by Thorvald. And of course it was pronounced Torvald with a hard T and silent H. So the name skipped a few generations but I'm continuing the name's use in my family as a middle name for my son.
