Nicknames for Robin

I have a toddler DD called Robin. One of my close friends has a slightly older toddler DS, also Robin. Big Robin and Little Robin is proving a mouthful. We need to give them different names and I'm a bit stuck.

DD is Bob at home. Trouble is, so is BF's DS.

So, what options do I have? DD has significant hearing loss in both ears so I'm not sure she'll get the difference between Rob and Bob....

Any ideas, even wildly far out ones, would be gratefully seized upon!

Thank you.

Robinho, like the footballer? Pronounced Robeenyo.

I tend to call her Wee Bean when on my own with her... not very helpful though, I guess. And Rocking Robin happens a fair bit... would Rocky be daft for a girl...?

I like Red reminds me of Fraggle Rock which can only be a good thing IMO grin

Birdy is cute! Like that....

D'yknow I'd just stick with robin. Rather than shortening it.

It's a beautiful name.

And I'd correct anyone who called her rob.

Well I've been trying for several months. The trouble is when they're both pottering around in the park and boy Robin does something wrong / dangerous, the shouted 'ROBIN!' makes her cry because she thinks it's her. She also does stupid things but boy Robin is older and doesn't seem so bothered/confused when DD has the 'ROBIN!' treatment.

Maybe I could start calling boy Robin 'Batman'.

Thank you! Bobble is cute. She gets Bobsicle, Boblet and Boberoo here - not thought of Bobble!
