LANGUAGE FAMILY:

ORIGIN:
germanic 
NAME ROOT:
*HRōþIZ *BERHTAZ > HRōDEBERT
MEANING:
This name means “bright fame, shining glory”. The name derives from the Old High German name “Hrōdebert”, composed of two elements: “*hrōþiz” (praise, fame, glory, renown, honour) and “*berhtaz” (light, bright, clear, shining one). Robert the Magnificent (le Magnifique) was the Duke of Normandy from 1027 until his death. Owing to uncertainty over the numbering of the Dukes of Normandy he is usually called Robert I, but sometimes Robert II with his ancestor Rollo as Robert I. Robert I (866–923), King of Western France (922–923). Before succeeding his brother Odo as King he was the Count of Poitiers, Marquis of Neustria and Orléans and Count of Paris. After becoming widely used in Continental Europe it entered England in its Old French form Robert, where an Old English cognate form (Hrēodbēorht, Hrodberht, Hrēodbēorð, Hrœdbœrð, Hrœdberð) had existed before the Norman Conquest.
