Meaning:bright fame
This is how you say Robert in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. The charming, masculine name became increasingly popular in the US during the 20th century as Latino communities grew throughout the country. But in the 21st century, the opposite happened: Ethnic-specific names aren’t as prevalent as they once were. The trend is to go with the Americanized version, which doesn't identify a person's culture or family background. Names like Roberto, Pedro and Mikaila celebrate the US's dynamic diversity and soul, so if you're looking to keep your culture alive, this could be the perfect name for you and baby.
