Well...My grandpa was R.B/Rob (depending on who was talking to him), My dad is Bobby, my brother is Robert, and we wanted to use family names. But I was burnt out on Robert so we picked Robin as out girl name - and I love it! I love it for my sweet girl, and I think it's a great boy name also. I had a guy friend in college named Robin, and it never seemed even a little bit feminine. He was really cool and sporty (and hot), and no one ever thought anything amiss about the name Robin. Plus, I could point out the boy wonder, compadre of Batman, Robin - which is probably, if anything, what male Robins do get teased about. Outside the US, I think Robin is much more common among men than women.
I'm a big believer that you give your child the name you think is best, then raise them to be strong and confident. you can't control what other people might think or say - but you can raise a child with a character that can be strong in the face of adversity.
