First name for Robin?

I’m looking to redo my neglected list of boys names and I thought I would start here as we’d really like to use the middle name [name_u]Robin[/name_u] for a son.

It’s my OH’s first name, and he has his father’s first as a middle name, so it would be carrying on that tradition. I’m also a big bird lover and my favourite bird happens to be the robin, so it’s a middle that would be special to both of us.

So yes, looking for first names to go with [name_u]Robin[/name_u] and would love some suggestions. Surname is two syllables, starts with ‘W’ and rhymes with Hairy.

Names I like but can’t/won’t use:

[name_m]Alastair[/name_m] (feels outdated here, not fresh)
[name_m]Barnaby[/name_m] (too similar to a family member’s name)
[name_m]Chester[/name_m] (was a family dog’s name)
[name_u]Miles[/name_u] (too popular)
[name_m]Wilfred[/name_m] (name of a friend)

Generally speaking, I like vintage names especially ones that have a British vibe, a nature connection (like [name_m]Jasper[/name_m]) or are word names (like [name_m]Forrest[/name_m]). But I’m open to anything that sounds good with [name_u]Robin[/name_u] and flows with a two syllable surname!

Thanks berries. :pray:t2:

always loved [name_u]Robin[/name_u] way more for a boy than a girl. [name_u]Robin[/name_u] has been one of my faves since 9 years old I think, the first time I read The [name_m]Little[/name_m] White Horse, and I love [name_u]Robin[/name_u] Hood too. I have [name_u]Kit[/name_u] [name_m]Austell[/name_m] [name_u]Robin[/name_u] in my sig, also.

Hmmm
seems to me you like a healthy mix of modern and vintage, fresh, but classic, unique, but a bit popular is ok with you. (just my opinion sorry if I got it wrong) =)

[name_u]Robin[/name_u] makes such a handsome middle, and I love that it’s so meaningful to you and your partner!
Some ideas (These all feel fairly British to me, stars mean the meaning is connected to nature in some way):
[name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_u]Robin[/name_u]*
[name_m]Benedict[/name_m] [name_u]Robin[/name_u]
[name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] [name_u]Robin[/name_u]
[name_m]Edmund[/name_m] [name_u]Robin[/name_u]

[name_u]Douglas[/name_u] [name_u]Robin[/name_u]*
[name_m]Sylvester[/name_m] [name_u]Robin[/name_u]*

Thanks everyone!

@EJpuddlejumper Oh my, [name_u]Kit[/name_u] [name_m]Austell[/name_m] [name_u]Robin[/name_u] is absolutely divine. I hadn’t considered it as a second middle, but you’ve inspired me! I love the name [name_u]Kit[/name_u] and my OH is actually from Cornwall (although not St [name_m]Austell[/name_m] so we wouldn’t use that specifically but I will look into some other [name_u]Kit[/name_u] ____ [name_u]Robin[/name_u] combos). Thank you!

@MG1257 Thanks, nothing that jumps out at me that would work for us, but Herald is an interesting one. I’ve seen a lot of names, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen that one!

@Johannaa [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] [name_u]Robin[/name_u] is very handsome, but alas it’s my brother’s first name.

@ceilidh_rooney Thanks, not seeing a combo there that grabs me but I do love [name_m]Magnus[/name_m], [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] and [name_m]Walter[/name_m] as names so you’re in the right place!

@Babies123456 Wow, [name_u]Ira[/name_u] [name_u]Robin[/name_u] is unexpected. I don’t know if I love it, but I’m definitely going to have to think more about it.

@Greyblue Definitely a few faves in there - love [name_m]Rufus[/name_m] but not keen on the nickname Rufie. [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_u]Valentine[/name_u], but my OH would never go for it as a first. [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_u]Emerson[/name_u] but it bothers me that it’s gone to the girls in the US.
