    Roberta

    What do you think of this? Too dated/old person name? I used to dislike it, but the more I think about it the more I like it. I think it's due for a comeback, and the nn Robbie is ADORABLE as far as I'm concerned. Thoughts?
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    For me, I find Roberta to be a really refreshing choice full of lively nicknames to make it downright spunky: Robbie, Bobbie, Berta, and Bertie.

    I always found it old and clunky, but lately I'm liking it too. It seems fresh again since I rarely hear it. I love the possibility of Bobbie as a nickname, and Robbie and Bertie are cute too.

    I just don't like the "bert" sound in the middle of the name. Also, it was a name others used to ridicule girls. They thought it was funny to call someone Roberta instead of their name.
