  • "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." May. 21, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My 13 month old is Walker Frederick. We decided on Walker after we had orginally wanted Weston. A collegue of mine has a Weston, so I didn't feel right using the name. We have a 4 yr old named Wyatt. When I suggested Walker to my husband he loved it. All of our family and friends call him Walka Walka from Fozzie from the Muppets. His name truly fits! I absolutely love him and his name! We always get comments on how unique it is." Jun. 6, 2016: Report as inappropriate
