Will be Robert or Oliver, but known by Robbie or Ollie.

I much prefer the full versions of both tbh

Ollie at a push though!

But I prefer the nickname Ollie.

Prefer Robert to Oliver but prefer Ollie to Robbie.

Far prefer Robbie (and Robert).

I adore Robbie!

Robert is lovely and is Bobby
Love Oliver and Ollie.
Can't abide Robbie.

I have an Oliver - only ever called that when bad - he's an Ollie really (on school register as Ollie).

He loves the name (he's a teenager) - I love it also. Never regretted it!

Obv I'm biased but it would have to be Ollie.

Robert. Much less popular.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 22-Oct-16 08:22:55

Really like Robbie too.

Rob is nice when he gets too old for Robbie, and there's no grown up shortening for Oliver. And there are a lot of Olivers about and not many Roberts.

NavyandWhite Sat 22-Oct-16 08:28:38

Robbie will always be associated with the gurning, pain in the arse RW.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 22-Oct-16 08:36:20

RW is 40+ years older than the ops Robbie. It's irrelevant.

It's the first thing I think of when I hear the name.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 22-Oct-16 08:48:18

It won't be the first thing this Robbies school friends and then work colleagues will think of. Doubt they will even have heard of him.

I have a Robert. Can be shortened and pet named but still a good solid name for when older. He calls himself Bobs at the moment though.

BadToTheBone Sat 22-Oct-16 08:48:48

Robert/ Robbie by a long way.

I also think the RW link is irrelevant, as his peers won't make that association, just old people, lol (and by that, I mean people over 25! lol)

Ollie does sound wet in comparison tbh.
