I'm sure everyone now associates it with Walt Disney...
Walt Stone is a character in The Kane Chronicles trilogy by Rick Riordan.
Walt Disney!
When you wish upon a star...
In 2018, 51 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Walt* who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 6, 251st most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.

*as a first name, not a nickname.
21 baby boys born in the USA (2015) were given Walt.
Okay, since nobody has anything nice to say about Walt, I felt compelled to add my two cents! I think that Walt is a very cute nickname, and Walter makes a very distinguished first name (for me, Walter falls in the same class as Charles, Edward, George and Henry). Walt is very casual and down to earth and fun. Perfect for a child, or the adult who doesn't want something so formal.

And for the record, everybody else seems to think of Walt Disney first, but Walt Whitman and Sir Walter Scott came to mind before Mr. Disney even entered it.
I was only reminded of Walt Disney when I read the comments section here. Honestly.
Walt is a good name, just too youthful.
I like Walter, but not this nickname. It makes me think of Walt Disney and all the urban legends surrounding him.
This name is also used in Limburgish.
I think of the younger-son character from The Squid and the Whale. His brother is Frank, and his parents are Bernard and Joan - very traditional.
Immediately brings Walt Disney and nothing else to mind. Not good.
It's really ugly and unless you're a four-foot white-haired old man with a hearing aid, who remembers when television was invented, this name doesn't suit you.
Walt Disney! He was awesome! I think the whole world misses him. I don't know how a boy these days would cope with it, though.
Walt is the name of a character on Lost.
Walt Whitman and Walt Disney are famous bearers.
