Etymology of the name ROBERT.
Meaning of the baby name ROBERT.

  

ROBERT.  English and French name meaning "bright fame."  It is the same as Anglo-Saxon Hrodbyrht, and German Hruodebert.  Usage: America, England, France, Ireland, Scotland.  Robert Louis Stevenson, the excellent author of such well-known works as Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

... after the son of St. Louis carried it off to the House of Bourbon, the name scantily appeared among the royal family.  Normandy, however, cultivated it after it had been chosen at the baptism of her first duke, and sent it to Apulia with the astute Robert Guiscard,... The next Duke of Normandy who bore it was that wild pilgrim, whose soubriquet varies between the Devil and the Magnificent.  The disinheritance of his equally wild, but more unfortunate grandson, Robert Courthose, diverted it from the English throne, but a flood of knights and nobles had poured in and established it so completely, that in a few generations more Hob was one of the established peasant names in England... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
