Graham Robin 🐻

After many years of playing with the Nameberry site and helping friends choose names for their babies, I finally got an opportunity to name one of my own when he was born 10/30! I love [name_m]Graham[/name_m] as a warm-feeling underused classic and frequently call him my little [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] [name_m]Graham[/name_m]. I like that the name has connections that are musical (Graham Nash-Crosby, Stills & Nash), comedic (Graham Chapman-Monty Python), and literary (Graham [name_m]Greene[/name_m] + song of the same name by [name_u]John[/name_u] Cale).

I chose [name_u]Robin[/name_u] after my dad and brother [name_m]Rob[/name_m], using a diminutive of [name_u]Robert[/name_u] to make it a gender neutral nature name. I think gender neutral names should be used more often for boys! I love that these birds represent warmth, renewal and hope, which feels relevant to this season of life, and like that the name has comedic (Robin Williams) and literary (Robin Hood, [name_m]Christopher[/name_m] Robin) connections. :nest_with_eggs:
