    Thoughts on this 'classic'?

    What is the general consensus on the name Robert? Possibly with the nn Robbie? Is it a strong classic or is it horribly outdated? I only know of two, one is my age (23), and the other is a few years younger, prob 20?

    I'm still looking for a name to replace Evander in my top two. Would Robert and Lachlan seem strange as brothers? I really love the nn Robbie, and sometimes feel Robert might not fit with all my other name choices. Can you get Robbie from other names?

    I think Robert is a bit too mainstream and mid-century to go with your other favorites. Robinson nn Robbie may be a way to freshen it up. Lachlan and Robinson are nice together imo. Also, I like Anders on its own not just as a nn for Evander, are you considering that?

    I think Robert is fibe with your list, it is slightly different but not too much. I don't really believe in the idea that names are dated, so I think Robert is fine to use.I think what is most important is that you choose a name that you love.

    I think Robert and Lachlan work fine together. Both seem very Scottish to me. From your list, I think Dresden, Thatcher, and Evander go well enough with Robert, whereas Peregrine, Theron, and Cadmus seem a little mismatched.

    That's how I feel as well. I think Robinson would work great with the other names on your list. Robert is definitely a classic name so not outdated or anything but I think Robert and Lachlan don't really fit together well.
