An extremely popular name in the 1920s and 1930s, the name Robert (as in Wechsler, pictured here, from No. 12 company Century Payments) has kept a foothold in states from the Old South, particularly South Carolina and Mississippi: two states that still memorialize General Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army during the American Civil War. Interestingly enough, however, the name Robert originated in Germany before several kings throughout Continental Europe took the name for themselves. Famous Roberts include Frost, Redford, and De Niro.
