It's true it is an English name, although it sounds for me as a Dutch girl also Dutch. It isn't a very common name in the Netherlands, but it sounds really Dutch.

Famous bearer is Bob the Tomato of The Veggie Tales.

Among famous bearers is actor Bob Hoskins. (Whenever people who know Robert De Niro speak of him he is also always called Bob).

The cartoon "SpongeBob Squarepants" bears this name, but as a second. I've always thought of Bob as a bald-headed man who just does barbecue in his patio. There is also a movie called "What about Bob?" with Bill Murray.

I would use Bob as a name for an example. Eg. now, Bob went to the store, he bought five lollies, then Sally came and ate one, how many lollies does Bob have left?

Bob, I think, is a cool name.
Wierdmin  12/11/2006
My name is Robert. I have been called "Bob" all my life.
As a child I hated it , but as I got older around 11ish I grew to like it. And now I love it! It is a simple name yet it is so easy to remember -- 99% of the time people remember my name after the first time I introduce myself. And besides you can always find stuff with Bob on it!

Famous bearer Bob Monroe from the awesome movie: RV.

This name has got to be the most boring name ever. It has no personality. And it rhymes with "blob". Enough said.
Jasmine  2/28/2007
I hate this name! It's too common. Ugh!

Bob is a weird name!

There was a builder on DIYSOS called Bob Grose.
Luangi  4/7/2007
Never. It is used as an insult at my school, or if there is a stand-in teacher, the boys give their names as Bob. I'd never subject my child to the humiliation of being "Bob, the Hob Nob who Dobbed".
DontDissMadison  5/1/2007
I've never really liked this name. It always make me think of a plummer, you know, one of those guys that should be wearing a belt because his pants hang WAY too low.
― Anonymous User  5/7/2007
Personally, I hate this name. Robert is fine but be called Rob or Robert! Like everyone else when I hear the name Bob, I think of someone who is white trash and needed that name so they could spell it! How do you spell your name? Ummmm. B. Ummmmm. O. Ummmm.... B!

LOL! No insult to anyone named Bob. Really. Not saying you are slow or white trash. That's just the type of person who comes to mind.

Even though Bob is a colloquial and friendly name, Robert has more of a "take me seriously" edge to it, and would probably be the better choice between the two.
Kaia  9/23/2007
I hope no one actually names their kid this.
TeAmoPinas  11/6/2007
A famous bearer is Bob Seger, a 70s-80s rock singer.

Scott Baio played a lawyer on the show "Arrested Development" named Bob Loblaw.
pandasayscynical  1/25/2008
The name "Bob" is practically a joke among kids now, I don't recommend naming your child this - it would give them a good enough reason to hate the world.
Junidoe-Josephine  3/17/2008
This name reminds of a caucasian businessman who wears a toupee.

Bob is one of the rats in Garfield.
Dianna475  3/25/2008
When I was a little girl I had an imaginary friend named Bob! I agree with most of you in saying this is probably not a good choice to name your little boy.

Bob is also nickname for Bohuslav, Bohumil, Bohdan, Bohumír.
Emilie007  10/24/2008
The name Bob sounds awesome!
― Anonymous User  11/8/2008
I think this name has been given a bad rap by the teenage population due to the fact that it "sounds funny" and is a bit of a joke name to some.
emmiix3  1/22/2009
This name is so plain and funny sounding, I can't imagine anyone naming their kid Bob. This name is a joke among kids, if told to name something funny, like a stuffed pig or tree, kids will say either Bob, Fred or Joe. Like in school we got to have a pig race, with stuffed pigs, and my class named our pig Billy Bob Joe.

Let's not forget Bob Crane, famous for his role as the title character in Hogan's Heroes. His murder still hasn't been solved.

What about Bob Gaudio? Musical extraordinaire - member of the Four Seasons - he wrote some of the greatest songs of all time including 'Can't take my eyes off you' and '[Who wears] Short Shorts'! The man is brilliant and personally I'd love to namesake him.
robinthered  5/8/2009
I reckon the name Bob deserves a revival - of course it has negative connotations but what name doesn't? I'd rather name my child this than something really 'interesting' which just ends up sounding pretentious or even worse something every other child seems to be called like Daniel or Joshua. I think used right, it could really work - it can be a really fun and youthful name, and Bobby makes a really sweet nickname.
― Anonymous User  5/8/2009
Bob is fine as a nickname, even though it sounds like a fat man. However, it is horrible as a legal name, like what that actor Charlie Sheen used on one of his sons.
bananarama  9/9/2009
This might be OK for a nickname, but it's sort of ugly, has a weird sound, and makes me think of the 'Mr. Dobelina, Mr. Bob Dobelina' song which really gets stuck in my head.
greta-elisif  10/10/2009
Bob is the center of all jokes. He’s funny.
Myth Writer Dreamer  6/20/2010
I think Bob is a good nickname for Robert, though many of the Roberts I know go by "Rob". One person I know who goes by the nickname Bob is a sweetheart. But a typical joke for the name Bob is the "Bob the Builder" TV show, so occasionally he gets teased with chants and songs like, "Booooooooob the buuuiiiilderr! can he dooo iiitt? NO HE CAN'T!" but other than that his nickname is awesome and thanks to him I want to name a pet "Bob" :-)

My legal name is Robert, and I am the third generation in a row to have the name, to differentiate myself from my father and grandfather, I was called Bobby. As I grew older, my name matured into just Bob. I answer to Bobby, Bob, Rob & Robert. The only time I call myself Robert is when I am acting as an amateur radio operator, as it's the legal name on my FCC license. The rest of the time, I actually prefer to be called by Bob.
Kacela  5/6/2015
I like this first name because it is serious and funny ( Bob )

The name Bob is usually a joke now. If I was named Robert, I would be called Robert. People will pick up a stick and say its Bob. People consider it a random name.
Eileen1209864  7/6/2016
It's the evergreen nickname for Robert. Maybe it's overused, but is still good.
Jake Fax  7/17/2016
This name is boring and it's so overused. It seems like everyone or everything is called Bob so to me it's just a "blah" name.

I think Bob is now used as a joke... no one that I know of that is a millennial is named Bob.
The name has died out into a joke.
