    Name Meaning

    English (Suffolk and Somerset): perhaps from an unrecorded Middle English personal name Bobbet, which could be a diminutive of Bobbe (see Bubb ) or a rhyming form of the Middle English personal name Robet, a diminutive of Robert . However, Bob is not attested as a pet form of Robert before the 17th century.
