Probably MySQL don't know about this "[.period.]" thing and just takes the "." in it
as "any char", e.g. your "t" from "walt".

Try '^wa[bhkl][-_acegmnopqrsuvwxyz]{1,5}[14Lt][23890IJOQ].*', if there is a "-" at the
beginning of a character class it is usually threaten literally as it makes no sense
as "from..to" separator in those cases.
