River by far, never understood the hype around Robin, makes me think of batman

Decided he looks most like a Robin also prefer the way it looks written down and how it sounds with the other kids names. Thanks everyone x

Love River. Would have used for my girl but it got vetoed 😒

Robin, as River is ridiculous. (Although River if you're going with 'what flows best').

Robin as a know two girls called River. I know Robin can be a girls name but it is spelt differently.

River is cool in theory but I don’t know if I’d force someone to have it as their name for life. Robin is awful.

Can you post a pic, does one of the names suit him more? I’m imagining completely different babies for robin and river

Raphael34 Wed 23-Oct-19 07:53:11

Definitely river

I would always be thinking River Phoenix.

God, no, Robin, obviously

AutumnalLeaves38 Wed 23-Oct-19 07:51:15


I vote for Pobin

Shadow1234 Wed 23-Oct-19 07:44:26

River by far the nicest

Mollie3 Wed 23-Oct-19 04:30:58

Like these names but I’d pick what flows best with last name

Robin means bright fame according to my baby names app
English name

River is American and means river!

Congratulations! From what you’ve said he sounds more like a river to me

I don't love either but would pick River.

MissHenty Wed 23-Oct-19 02:29:46

River is cool! I adore Robin though so I’d probably pick that but River is very close.

River - I love it!

WitchibanLipstickForMen Tue 22-Oct-19 21:38:31

River by miles but the general mumsnet opinion will be Robin I'm sure hmm

Congratulations by the way!

Robin, don't like River at all.

spice3 Tue 22-Oct-19 20:40:25

Robin. I'm not sure what I don't like about River but I've never been keen!

Moondancer73 Tue 22-Oct-19 20:05:41

River. Don't like Robin at all

Kanga83 Tue 22-Oct-19 19:41:31

Robin. I love it. Very superhero, batman and robin. River- anyone else got Timberlake 'cry me a river' in their head now?
