Yes / no?

Like it, don't like it?

A bit 80's but quite classic and nice.

Love Robbie, Rob.

I'm biased because we've got one wink

The only Rob I have met was an utter cunt, in the strongest sense of the word and I'm not apologising for it.

It's a no from me.

Yes like it especially Rob.

<Hopes fervently it wasn't the same person StrawberrytallCAKE knew>.

Yes. I know a 16 year old and a 10 year old Robert and it suits them both. Not too common, easy to spell, choice of NNs. What's not to like?

I doubt it donkeys unless he has a history of dv.

God no; glad he's no longer blighting your life.

Lovely name.

There was a thread about it a short while ago and I'm pretty sure it got the thumbs up.

I know a few across then ages of 18 down to 4. A classic name but not overused.

Yup, I like it:

Yes. Like it.

I love it.
My DS is a Robert.
Born late 90s.

Mostly known by full name. Not often shortened.

nicename but could become fairly common thanks to twilight and robert Pattinson - depends if that bothers you.

It's pretty timeless, you know people of all ages, and throughout history called Robert.

It's gone through a bit of a lull recently, but it's a steady classic.

It's my Dad's name, he's in his 70s. I know people my age with it, and 20-year olds with it. Not many babies with the name, but in another 5 or 10 years it will probably pick up in popularity again.

Really like Robert.
Underused and classic.
Lots of options for NNS.

DramaAlpaca Wed 17-Jul-13 16:46:29

Lovely classic name.

Thumbs up from me.

It's a fab name, I love it.

LucyTheValiant Wed 17-Jul-13 16:54:19

My 'baby' brother is Robert, I chose it when he was born and I was 10. Much better than my other brother's suggestion of 'Baldy Cry Face' hmm

(Oops, meant to add that I think it's a lovely name and you should go for it!)
