Love it! Seems very feminine to me.

I prefer this spelling of the name for girls. It's interesting that the description says that Robin is being revived as a male name. We seem to be coming full cycle, then. When I was younger, particularly here in the UK, Robin was viewed as a unisex name, but one that was mainly used for boys. Ashley was truly unisex then and, if anything, there seemed to be more male Ashleys. I can't see Ashley being used as a male name again for some time, but Robin could work, especially as Rob and Robbie can be nicknames, as per Robert. I went to school with a Robina, pronounced Rob-een-a. Maybe that could even be revived. She did get Ribena jokes, even then, though.
