To be honest, I would say the chances are high that he is gonna be called Toby sooner or later. You don't really have control over what kids call each other in school, ...
I saw some of our friends have the same problems. They tried really hard to emphasize that he will be called by his full name but after his first years in school everybody but his parents ended up calling him by a not so nice-sounding nn instead of his full name.
Btw. I love both Tobin and Toby23-year old name nerd/addict living in Austria

My son, a teenager, has never gone by a nickname. Actually my nephews and nieces, most of my son's friends and family friends, and a high percent of neighborhood children all go by their full names. I only know of once that a teacher tried calling one of my friend's children a nickname (it did not happen until he was a teen), he informed her that was not his name, she apologized and they moved on. I see no worries about it. Tobin is such a handsome name.
