For a boy??

It wouldn't be my favourite name. Also would you mind it being shortened to Rob or Robbie?

Lovely. My husband's name is robin (and he is a man amongst men) so I'm biased of course!

Love it and it's up there at the moment if we're ever mad enough to go again.

Love it.

Boy or girl?

We have one in the family and a friend of the family (must be in his 70s now) - both boys - and they really hate christmas. Must be all the cards and giftwrap with the wee fat red-breasted birds on them it never gets old.

Very nice.

Love it for a boy, not keen for a girl. But all the Robins I know are men/boys.

I would say I like it, but only for a man.

I have a sister called this, and she has hated it all her life - constant jokes about 'redbreast' unfortunately has soured what was a sweet name.

Love it for a boy. It's up there on our list.

I like it, it strikes me as being a very gentle name.

Ah Robin Nedwell

MadamFolly Fri 02-Nov-12 13:40:27

I like it for both sexes.

Robin for boys

Robyn for girls.

Sorry, but it's a bit wet I think for a boy/man. It's in the mix with Lindsay and Leslie and all those type of names for me.

I think it's a lovely name. I prefer it for a girl though - I find it slightly drippy for a boy, though the Robins I know aren't at all so don't know where I've got that from. smile
