We named our son Walker James. Walker is a family name on my husband's side and James was my father's name (RIP). Walker is 15 months old now and it fits him perfectly! He never crawled and went straight to walking. He is always on the move unlike his big sister who was a chill baby. We get the occasional Texas Range comment from adults but most people say they love it. I love when I say it, no one mishears me. They always hear it right the first time.

I'm having my first son and we play to name him Walker Benham. Benham is a family name. We're excited about our choice but my mom told me she hates it.

It is usually pronounced correctly (some mis-read it as Walter). Most people say they like it.

10/16/2022 2:22:44 PM

This is my sons name! It is pronounced (KAY-den) but we decided to spell it this way so that it would have the'same letters as my name! I think it is a very strong males name!!

We named our daughter, (born in '04) Regan and love it I'mensely! She will live up to the power of the name, I am certain--spunky little thing that'she is. It wasn't out of reverence to the late President (he died the month she was born though), but we never could have named her that if we didn't love him as well :-)

I love surnames as first names. I have two daughters: Micaela and Kinsey and am expecting again. If this is a boy, we're going to name him Walker!

my maiden name...trying to get my granddaughter to use it. strong, unique, manly, simple, fairly rare. How can she go wrong. I'm 83.

My husband and i named our son walker, after paul walker. We were huge fans of the fast and furious series, we grew up together and always saw them together. We found out i was pregnant the day he died, It'seemed suiting

My son is named Walker. After my Grandparents last name. We have only met one other person so far with his name... hes 7!

We named our first son WillI'm and we call him Will. Every now and then my dad slips and calls him Bill, but I don't think he'll ever have the nickname Bill because we as his parents can determine what he is called. I love the name Will for a little boy and I think it will fit when he's older but if not, WillI'm is not such a long name that it must be shortened w/ a nickname.

We chose the name Aidan for our son, who was born Nov. 21, 2019, because it was strong, beautiful and (we thought) unusual. We really wanted a good Irish name. Even'though we now know just how popular this name is - we would n't change our choice at all. The name and its meaning fits our Aidan perfectly. Aidan's rock!!

All I can'think of is Chuck Norris and Walker Texas Ranger

Naming my son Walker! Its a cute strong name. Not naming after anyone we just loved the name and dont know anyone else personally with the name.

I named my son Walker after the poem by Antonio Machado: "Walker there is no road, you make the road by walking." (Caminante, no hay camino. Se hace camino al andar.) He later honored me by getting a tatoo with the'spanish lines.
