Will Walter Become More Popular?
I love Walter--gentlemanly, with a long rich history, and a kicky nickname. It's obviously masculine but not agrressively macho. Also, I love Walt Whitman. It's #393 in the US (which is a little more popular than I anticipated), which means it gets used, but it's not all over the place.
But with the Walt-focused Breaking Bad ending this year and the upcoming release of the movie version of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty coming out, is Walter about to make a big jump? It's sort of in that sweet spot of great-grandparent names at the moment, but I'm not sure if it still carries too fusty of an air about it. (Obviously I don't think so. What do you think?) It doesn't fit too many of the other boy-name trends at the moment. How high do you think it will go?
