Robby looks like what a burglar might do grin.

Love Robert.

Robbie. Robby sounds like how you would describe someone light fingered "he's a bit robby"grin

Bertie when is small!

Robbie for school age

Rob as a young adult.

That's what my neighbour was
Lively young man now.

No idea why but that's the way they are spelt.

No need to reinvent the wheel.

Thank you

Why shorten it at all? Robert is lovely. In the same way, I work with a Christine ( not Chris), Barry ( not Bazza) and a Megan ( not Meg). The full version of a name is cool .

squoosh Sun 24-Jul-16 00:01:25

Barry is never cool!

Definitely not Robby.

I find the name Robbie a bit 90s tbh. Prefer Bobby as a nn though prefer the full version - Robert - the best.

DramaAlpaca Sun 24-Jul-16 00:40:21

Robbie, definitely.

<Robby was the name of the cute seal in the tv series Pingu>

How did you know his name? Didn't they just make funny noises and nonsense language?
