    Smile Robbie

    I've been considering Robbie as an honour name to Robert/Bob for quite a while (prefer it to Bobby and we also have another family member with that name) and it also gives me sophisticated vibes a la Margot Robbie. Potential nn Ro.

    My question is: Is Robbie too close to Ruby? My niece is named Ruby (13) who we see often and I worry about them getting confused.

    I also like Bo as an alternative but DH is not 100%. I'm not really into Robin for a girl, unfortunately!

    Thanks, x

    I don't think that Robbie is too close to Ruby, especially if you go with Ro as a nickname.

    You could also use Roberta and get either Robbie or Birdie (from your signature).

    Robbie and Ruby are very close but i dont think it's unusably so. However, i do much prefer Bo

    I think Robbie and Ruby would be too close for siblings, but they're absolutely fine for cousins!

    Agreed, they're way too close for siblings, but not for cousins. Especially if you intend to have a nn, like Ro, as that could be used when you're around the cousins, so there's no confusion as to who you're calling for! Although I also like the pp's suggestion of Roberta too, who could be nicknamed Robbie, Ro, Bobbi and/or Birdie!

    Robbie and Ruby totally work for cousins! Robbie is adorable and a great way to honor Robert.

    I do think Robbie is a cute nn, fn, or mn. I like the idea of a more elegant first with Robbie in the mn spot or Ro as a nn. Roberta is not my fave, but what about Robitha/Robetha, Robina, Rolande, or Rowena as first names?

    I think it's a little too close to Ruby as a first name, but it would be an unexpected middle!

    I don't think Robbie and Ruby are too close for cousins. I'm not sure how I feel about Robbie for a girl, but then again it's outside my personal style. I think Ro and Bo are cute though. I like the above suggestions of Roberta as a full name.

    Robbie is very close to Ruby, but I wouldnt say that makes it unusable. With a big age difference, the kids will probably know who is being spoken to. Definitely not an issue if one of the girls has a nickname they can use more around family. Ro is a nice nickname, or you could use Bee. That makes it very clear which one is spoken to/about at family events.
