DOBBINS Family HistoryThis interesting surname, chiefly found in Scotland, derives from the medieval male given name Dobbe, itself a pet form of Robert, from the Old Germanic "Hrodebert", a compound of "hrod", renown, and "berht", bright, famous. The name was initially introduced into England during the reign of Edward the Confessor (1042 - 1066), but took hold after the Norman Conquest. Rodbertus, Rotbert and Robert (without surname) appear in the Domesday Book of 1086. The subsequent popularity of the name gave rise to a variety of diminutive and pet forms including: Robb, Robbie, Dobb, Dobby, Nob and Bob.
