Army Hospital?

[name]Hi[/name] All. I’ve always wanted to name a boy after my grandfather [name]Walter[/name]. I think it’s a noble, honest, handsome name. Problem is, I’ve married a man with the last name [name]Reed[/name]. Oops. So what do we think, saddle a kid with the name of an army hospital, or keep it as a middle name?


I’d go with keeping it as a middle name.

Oh, what luck! I think you’d need to keep it as a middle name unfortunately. [name]Just[/name] think of the headlines he could possibly have to deal with during his lifetime.

Oh, that’s too bad. I really like [name]Walter[/name]. I do think it should probably be a middle name in this case, unfortunately.

Yes, [name]Walter[/name] is terrific! At least your son will have a first-rate middle name. With your surname, a three-syllable first name would be ideal. For example:

[name]Nicholas[/name] [name]Walter[/name] [name]Reed[/name]
[name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Walter[/name] [name]Reed[/name]
[name]Nathaniel[/name] [name]Walter[/name] [name]Reed[/name]
[name]Jonathan[/name] [name]Walter[/name] [name]Reed[/name]

[name]Benjamin[/name] is one of my favorite names! I agree that sounds pretty good! Thanks so much weighing in on this, folks!

Oooh!!! I love [name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Walter[/name] [name]Reed[/name]! What a great name!

Good luck!

[name]Love[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name]! [name]Nicholas[/name] and [name]Nathaniel[/name] are great, too!
