In Italy it was a very common name.
Since 2000 it is decreasing in popularity.
In 2016 there were born 295 Robertas (the lowest number since national statistics in '99).

Roberta is rated 5/10 in my opinion.
It is boring, plain, colourless.

I love this name! I don't think it's masculine at all, it's beautiful and it has a really strong sound, maybe because of the R and T in it.

Looks like Robert with an A.
The emphasis on the 'bert' syllable adds to the masculinity.
Whereas a name like Justine, which is Justin with an E, still has a feminine sound.

I was named after my grandfather, Robert. I've been called Bert, Berta and (by my niece) Bert-Bert. Sometimes it sounds masculine and awkward, but growing up I never had to worry about being mistaken for anyone else. Now as an adult I live in a completely different part of the country and for the first time met three other Robertas. Sometimes I get asked if I have Latin ancestry with the name being so close to Roberto.

"Sexy" is the first word that pops into my mind when I hear this name. A really hot one. Never got that "too masculine for a girl" BS.

I didn't care for the name when I was younger but it suits me now. And I appreciate that the name is not too common. When the receptionist calls for Roberta, it is extremely rare for two of us to answer.

I for one LOVE the name, mainly because it is my name. My name is Roberta Alexander. I was named after my dad whose name is Robert, although my aunt says she named me after Roberta Flack the singer. Either way I have always liked it. It is kind of difficult for some people to pronounce so sometimes I get a lot of nicknames, lol.

I find that the shift in accent (in English, at least) obscures the connection with Robert and makes the name seem independent, which I think is a good thing. The same goes for "Alberta."

Roberta is the name of a main character played by Christina Ricci in the 1995 movie "Now and Then"
And also, the baby sister in the 2010 movie "Ramona and Beezus" (based on the Beverly Cleary book series) was named Roberta.

I love this name! It just rolls off the tongue so well, and it's so pretty! I don't like the masculine 'Robert,' but this is just lovely. It may be a bit old fashioned, but I don't think it's lost it's touch. I'd like to use this name on one of my future daughters (if I have any.) At least as a middle name. ♥.

Vivian Vance's middle name was Roberta.

My friend's name is Roberta, but we all call her Bobbie. I think it's very cute!
Ravynne  8/21/2009
Another nickname could be "Birdie."
sweetkit  4/5/2008
I actually quite like this name. The nicknames Bobby or Robbie are cool for a pinch. And yes, the full name is harsh, but I really like the name for the nicknames.

Roberta is the main character in the children's novel 'The Railway Children,' though she abbreviates it to Bobby. I like this name because it is unusual, both tomboyish and feminine, and as I love the book and film it has good associations for me.
gwells  7/26/2007
I don't know why, but this name sounds scarily masculine to me.

Roberta´s pet forms are Robin, Berta, Bertine, Bobby.
Karcoolka  3/22/2007
My parents considered it for me, but then dropped it because my father's name is Roberto and it would have been awkward. I'm very glad they did - I don't like how it sounds. Weirdly enough, the same does not apply to the masculine form.
