An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


In the Scottish/English Borderlands, the Strathclyde Britons were the first to use the name Robbie. It is derived from the personal name Robert, which is composed of the elements hrod, meaning famous, and berht, meaning bright.

Robbie Early Origins



The surname Robbie was first found in Stirlingshire, but we must look to Aberdeen to find one of the more interesting entries, that of Beatriux and Issobell Robie (Robye) who were listed as witches in 1597 which was not that unusual of the religious conflicts of that time. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

For that reason spelling variations are extremely common among early Scottish names. Robbie has been spelled Robb, Robbie, Roby, Robe, MacRobbie, MacRobb and others.
