DH and I love this name and I've just found out I'm pregnant (hurrah).

Is it too twee for a Christmas baby though?

We'd already chosen the name but now have an awkward due date!

For a boy or a girl?

I really like it, its on the list im building - I'm also having a Christmas baby and the association hadn't even occurred to me!

I think it's a lovely name and the Christmas thing makes it even nicer. Not twee at all.

That's positive!

Lovely! Not twee at all

I have a Christmas Robin! He's never been teased for the festive connection. Not even when he went out with a girl called Holly :-D

It's a lovely name. Classic, with character but not overused. I don't think the Christmas due date matters a jot.
Good luck with your pregnancy!

It's a great name - it is getting more popular, I think (if that matters, didn't to me wink). I think the Christmas connection is lovely.

No, it's lovely.

In my family, Robin is short for Robert. I think that's worth considering.

Not a problem. Not many people are aware of one's birth date, outside of close friends and family, so most people won't be aware on a daily basis. Birthday will likely fall outside school term, so will draw even less attention.

I think it's lovely and the christmas connection makes it even more lovely

Thanks all. It's our definite front runner by a mile now.

I like it for a boy but don't like Robyn for a girl
