    Hi there.

    Are you honoring a Robert or just a Bobby? If it's a Robert, you could always consider Albert or Gilbert. I love Albert! It's on my list (my Paw Paw's name), w/the nn Alfie. Gilbert has a lot of great nns too: Gil, Gilby, Gib, Gibby.

    Hope this helps.

    I prefer Robbie to Bo, but I think I would prefer Robin to either of those options.

    As the previous poster mentioned, Robin is a great option. Of the two in the poll, I voted for Robbie. Very down-to-earth, friendly name—I like it a lot! Bo I prefer as Beau; the Bo spelling seems incomplete, even if it's not.

    Personally I prefer Bo, however, as a namesake, I always prefer something that is more obviously an honor, so for Robert, of these two, Robbie I feel would be much better.

    That said, I would greatly prefer Robin, perhaps with the nickname of 'Bo' or 'Bobby'.

    I love the suggestion of Robin! But from the options in the poll, I picked Bo.
    On my mind:

    Juno Marigold
    * Fern * Twila * Maude * Opal *

    I like Robbie and Bo but I prefer the spelling Beau. It looks more complete and not like a nickname.

    I would just go with Robert to have a more substantial full name, and then you could call him either as a nickname (which you could still do if you put Robert in the middle.)
