In Response To: Re: Verifying Sources ()

No, uncle Malvin "Bud" Walker was given the nickname by his mom Savannah "Bantie" Reed-Walker. Uncle Bud's father was named William Walker.

Interestingly, of the six children born to William and Savannah Walker, they didn't name their children after themselves.

Children were:
1. Alvin "Ash" Walker
2. Lola "Loke" Walker-Gilmore
3. Elijah "Lige" Walker (named after Savannah's father Elijah Reed)--also one of my nickname's growing up.
4. Hattie "Flickett" Walker-Hayes (named after William's mother Hattie Payne)
5. Amanda "Mandy" Walker-Livingston (named after Savannah's mother Amanda Whitt-Reed)
6. Malvin "Bud" Walker.
