I want you to know I have always liked my name. I never went through a time of preteen angst where I wished my parents had picked something else that fit the “real me”. I did go through a phase where I tried spelling my name with a y, Robyn, but I couldn’t pull that off, and okay there was a brief moment when I dotted the letter I with a heart.
1. Look it’s the first Robin of Spring. Everyone who says this to me thinks they are the very first. When I worked at Denny’s as a teenager, the old men loved this saying.
2. And during the winter – Look there’s a Robin and it’s not even spring.
3. Hey Robin where’s Batman?
4. Jingle Bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg. This one my cousin actually sang to me over and over and over on Christmas Eve until I cried. But I am over it now, it is behind me, I do not hold a grudge, really.
5. Robin, where are your merry men? Robin Hood references are many but usually limited to an older generation.
6. Another Robin Hood reference? Robin, where’s Little John?
7. Fly, Robin Fly—up up to the sky. This is an obscure song from the disco era.
8. Rockin Robin - tweet tweet. Now here is a song for all Robins to embrace. Once I had to introduce myself with an adjective with the first letter of my name and. I picked Rockin Robin.
9. We all know Robins can sing, so let’s listen to this one. This was the introduction at my first solo and ensemble contest in fourth grade.
10. Hey Robin, do you have a red breast? The old men at Denny’s loved this one too. Believe it or not this comes from a song .
11. When the red, red robin comes bop, bop, bopin’ along. I don’t understand it either, but it was a hit song in its day.
12. Red Robin – as in the restaurant. This is what my nephews call me – Aunt Red Robin.
13. Robin is a boy’s name. Robin Hood, Robin Williams, Batman & Robin, Robin Thicke? Maybe it is?
