|Bob is a very
common name. Until I went off to college, everybody called me
Robert. So, if you met me prior to 1965, you probably still call me
that. It's no big deal; as someone said, "I don't care what you
call me, just so you call me to dinner."
When I saw the Disney film, The Black Hole, I was taken aback to discover that the names of the two good robots were Bob and Vincent.

Somebody even wrote a book about the name Bob: The Bob Book : A Celebration of the Ultimate Okay Guy by David Rensin, Bill Zehme.
