The Office's Rainn Wilson on son's name

03/06/2007 at 09:06 PM ET

Actor Rainn Wilson, who will soon star in The Last Mimzy, and his wife, writer Holiday Reinhorn, know from personal experience what it’s like to grow up with an "unusual" name. It is with this in mind that couple chose the name of their 2-year-old son, Walter.

“It’s a nice, old-fashioned name, and it sounds good,” Rainn told Parade. "Walter Wilson—very presidential.”

The family lives in the suburbs of Agoura Hills, north of L.A., where Rainn films his hit show, NBC’s The Office (alongside celebrity baby Rashida Jones, daughter of music mogul Qunicy Jones). Rainn says the family has two pit bulls and that “Young Walter is in “pre-pre-school.”

I am, for some reason, actually really surprised that he’s married with a kid. He just didn’t seem like the type. I guess I have hard time seperating him from his character. Hah.

Love, love, love The Office!!! Love Dwight!!! I think his wife’s name Holiday is actually pretty cool…I like names with Holly in them (Holly, Hollis, Holland, and HOLIDAY) unfortunately I could never name my daughter any of those, because my dog growing up was named Holly, and one of my good friends has a daughter named Holly:-) Oh well, still great names.

I know two 3 year olds named Walter. They are both family names. The name has grown on me. Good solid name!

My dog’s name is Walt — actually Walt Whitman. And I know an 18-month-old named Walter. Next big thing?
