Love it, my ds's middle name after my grandfather. Think it's got such lovely nn's Rob, Bob, Bobby(my favourite), Robbie. A great name go for it grin

Lovely ,a classic name

I am not a fan of names that can be shortened/ nicknamed. But if you are ok for them to be called Rob, Bob, Robbie or whatever, Robert is a good, strong name IMO.

I love it.
dh vetoed it as he just kept walking around saying "Bob" in a Black Adder type way sad
Personally though, I like Rob, Robbie, and Bobby, and could cope with Bob although wouldn't have encouraged it.

Sorry but it sounds so solid and stodgy to me.

Love it. Strong name that travels well and suits all ages.

I really like Robert. Nice flexible name (I know Robs, Bobs, Robbies and a Bert too).

My 5"10, skinny as a whippet Rob would have to disagree with you about that smile

I love it. My dad was a Robert and my ds has it as his middle name.

Excellent name. Classic, ageless and versatile.

Really love it. Love Robert, Robbie and Rob. Hate Bob though.

It's great!

Blondie87 Sat 25-Jul-15 11:07:35

I think Bob is a really cute nn!

DramaQueenofHighCs Sat 25-Jul-15 11:11:22

I love it as its my DS's name. However I don't love it for other people to give their DS as a name as I chose it particularly because it was solid, easy to pronounce but NOT over popular at the moment! grin

FishCanFly Sat 25-Jul-15 11:18:41

Like Robert, but hate all the nn's he'll most likely be called

pasbeaucoupdegendarme Sat 25-Jul-15 11:24:36

I'm married to one. 6'4" and like a beanpole so a long way from stodgy smile

bunny85 Sat 25-Jul-15 11:26:04

Fish, couldn't agree more. Robert itself sounds lovely, but not sure I'll be able to cope with Bob and the like..confused
