  1. Our son is named after his father and grandfather.

  2. My husband’s name is Robert so we named our son after him and his grandfather by the same name. Bobby is short for Robert.

  3. We chose Bobby because it was my husbands brothers name who was killed by a dui driver. He got his name from his grandfather who’s name was Robert called Bobby. Since it was my husbands first we kept the family name going.

  4. His legal name is Robert and is named after my husband who I refer to as Robert. I like his name, but wanted something cuter, so he’s Bobby from the time he was born! The only thing I dislike is that my husband’s family still calls my husband Bobby so it can get a little confusing who we are talking about when we are with his family. Nowadays, it’s a unique name and I like that.
