  1. Robert

    The name Robert is an ancient Germanic given name, from Proto-Germanic *Hrōþi- "fame" and *berhta- "bright" (Hrōþiberhtaz). Compare Old Dutch Robrecht and Old High German Hrodebert (a compound of Hruod (Old Norse: Hróðr) "fame, glory, honour, renown" and berht "bright, shining"). It is the second most frequently used given name of ancient Germanic origin. It is also in use as a surname. After becoming widely used in Continental Europe it entered England in its Old French form Robert, where an Old English cognate form (Hrēodbēorht, Hrodberht, Hrēodbēorð, Hrœdbœrð, Hrœdberð, Hrōðberχtŕ) had existed before the Norman Conquest. The feminine version is Roberta. The Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish form is Roberto. Robert is also a common name in many Germanic languages, including English, German, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Scottish, Danish, and Icelandic. It can be used as a French, Polish, Irish, Finnish, Romanian, and Estonian name as well.

Examples of Robert in a Sentence

  1. Robert Behnkens:

    [ My son ] has only seen the pictures and video from before he was born, from my previous missions... I do want him to know that it's a mission that I feel strongly about, it's going forward in a way that I think is important for us, as humans — as Americans as well. And I want Robert Behnkens to be proud of Robert Behnkens father.

  2. Cate Meighan:

    Time and again we have watched celebs fall from grace, and if they law low for awhile they often can return, think of Martha Stewart, Paula Deen or Robert Downey Jr. all of those years ago. If Billy comes back, owns his behavior and apologizes without trying to explain things away, he'll be forgiven. Meighan, however, suggested Bush's options may be limited. I think he will work again. He may not be at a top network, but he'll work. Gainor notes that Bush has friends in all the right places in Hollywood.
