A royal name, Robert I was the father of William the Conqueror. Three kings of Scotland were also ruling Roberts, including Robert I of Scotland or Robert Bruce. (He’s one of the reasons there are so many people with the surname Roberts and Robertson running around.) Theatrical Roberts who have achieved “bright fame” in their careers include Robert Downey Jr., Robert Pattinson, Robert De Niro and Robert Redford. The nicknames Rob, Robb, Robbie and Robby leave the outdated Bob and Bobby behind in the dust.
