Thoughts on Robin - middle name Henry?

LeoandBoosmum Tue 17-Sep-13 04:02:38

I love Robin (spelt that way for a boy or a girl), especially coming up to winter...makes me thing of beautiful little Robin Redbreasts smile

I have a Robyn, if she had been a boy then Robin was my first choice, to me it sounds like a friendly name. It has lots of nn potential too, mine is sometimes a Rob, Robbie, Bobby, Bobs.

I would think girl

Mines was born in January... and he only looks ahem, red of hair in some lights!!

Brilliant name - although strangely the 2 fab Robin's I have known have had red hair and been born around Christmas.

We based it on the adult Robins we knew, my old senior Lecturer at Uni, DH's friend who is now a Doctor and fantastic set designer and artistic director.

I do get some asking if it's spelled 'with a Y?' but they are mostly idiots...

I think it will sound fine on a grown up. He can also easily use Rob if he wants to.

I have a 6.5mo Robin. I love it. Is he your first?

I agree that it's a wholesome name - that's why I like it!

UriGeller Mon 16-Sep-13 16:55:50

Sorry, its always sounded a bit fey to me. A bit wimpy. Nice on a shy 5 year old boy but can't see it on a grown up.

Oldandcobwebby Mon 16-Sep-13 16:51:38

Really nice name. It has a wholesome, Enid Blyton feel to it.

KatoPotato Mon 16-Sep-13 16:47:48

I've got a Robin! He's awesome! 3.5 now!

We chose the name while pregnant, my Mum wasn't keen but now concedes it's perfect!

Thanks all - feeling quite excited that we may now have a name!

Like this for either a boy or a girl.

Jemimapuddleduk Sat 14-Sep-13 19:44:39

Gorgeous, DH wouldn't let us have this on the list.

Good name, not massively well used, not massively unusual. I know 4 (50ish x 2 and 4 ish x 2)who are all lovely.
