I'm doing a paper for psych on Walter White [from Breaking Bad]. Would it be ok to refer to him as Walt, or should I stick to Walter?

In the show, everyone just calls him Walt and I feel kind of awkwardly formal calling him Walter. But if Walt is too informal, I could just stick to Walter.

At the beginning your paper you should put his full name then say everyone calls him Walt, then you can just write Walt through out the rest of the paper. (i love breaking bad!:D)

Journalistically, I believe he could be deferred to as "White".

Thank you. I thought about doing that but I think that'd be a little too formal & I'm sure my teacher expects us to refer to the person by their first name, so I'll probably just go with Walter
