My grandpa passed away yesterday. He was very, very loved by everyone who knew him. Dh and I are TTC. If we were to have a boy, what are your thoughts on the name Walter? Too old fashioned?

It is old fashioned but most family names are.

Old fashioned, but I was Extremely close with my grandfather. How about for the middle name? I say do it if you hope your son will grow up to be like your grandpa;)

Very old fashioned but it's a good name.  It could be a middle name if you're scared of using it as a first name.

That was my grandfather's name and I wish I would have named my son after him.

I like it. But I like old fashioned names. And Anne Shirley named her youngest Walter. :P

Thank you :) I do like it as a middle name, too. 

Quoting Bubbie0809: That was my grandfather's name and I wish I would have named my son after him.
