I like it op. It's a lovely name imo, Not particularly well used but also not hugely unusual smile
More importantly though, if YOU like it, use it & ignore everyone else.

I know several. One is Robert on his BC.
One is very dishy. One is funny and wears red jumper under a jacket sometimes.

I’ve always liked the name Robin. I had a thing for Robin Hood growing up (I’m blaming the Disney fox).

My Robin loves his name and also loves robin themed things! There'll be some lovely baby clothes with Christmas robins on at the moment- go for it!

Yes, lovely name, especially for a baby born at this time of year

Love it!

Gorgeous but then I’m biased as I have a 13 year old one!

No one in his school has the same name so unusual whilst also being a recognised name.

Never gets shortened to ‘Rob’ either which was one of my slight reservations.

Love it.

Can have Rob as a nn when older which suits everyone.

I love it, considered it for this baby, but DH has an ex girlfriend called it...

Oh please use it, it reminds me of Robin Hood and Christopher Robin, both of whom I love! It's gorgeous!

Love it. Maybe Robert or something else grown up mannish on his BC

Congratulations! I love Robin. It would be on my list for dc2, but it doesn’t go with our surname.

Love Robin for a boy. Gorgeous. Do it!

LadyHonoriaDedlock Tue 21-Nov-17 11:58:00

Yes! My teen Robin loves it (and has officially removed the 'normal' middle name I gave him as an insurance policy in case he didn't)

Really lovely. A little bit unusual without being awful-unusual or try hard.

If your surname is banks, maybe not... smile but otherwise yes. I like it
