Etymology & Historical Origin - Roberto

Roberto is the Italian, Spanish and Portuguese form of the English name Robert. The name Robert comes from the old Germanic name Hrodberht, derived from the near-synonymous elements “hrod” meaning 'fame or glory' and “berht” meaning 'bright, shining'. The French Normans introduced this name to Britain in the 11th century (after the Norman Conquest of England), where it replaced the Olde English cognate Hreodbeorht. Robert has remained a very common English name since the Middle Ages (as have the other language versions of the name). The Spanish version Roberto is ranked high in Spain, Mexico and Latin America.

Popularity of the Name Roberto

Roberto has been in constant use in America for over 100 years. Clearly, the name’s upwards momentum in usage during the 20th century closely shadowed the growing Hispanic/Latino populations in the United States. The high point of the name’s popularity really came in the 1980s when it was generally ranked as the 150th most popular boy’s name in the country. Since the turn of the 21st century however, Roberto has been waning in usage. Spanish-specific names are showing signs of wear as the Latino populations become more assimilated into American society and culture. Second or third generation Latinos are now turning to more Americanized name preferences and are also influenced by pop culture. In any case, Roberto has both ethnic strength of character combined with European cool. It’s a ‘bright, shining’ example of what a name should be.
