    Do you know anybody called Walter?

    If so, do you call them by their full name or just "Wally".

    Years ago, we had "Wally The Whistler" at work.

    Yes. He is younger than you'd expect a Walter to be, and calls himself Walt.

    I scout with a Walter & I call him Sir or Shere Khan depending on company. His wife thinks my "old fashioned ways" are hilarious, but our relationship is formally polite & positively supportive.

    I can only think of two I've known.
    One was an older guy where I worked years ago. He was always "Walter"
    I know another guy on another forum called "Walt".

    The poll is skewed because people who know a Walter are more likely to respond.

    I'd like to bet 10 that Jacob Reese-Mogg knows several Walters.

    My best friends father was called Walter, sadly he died some years ago. He had a bad temper as I remember and worked night shifts. Perhaps that was why he was bad tempered.
