Is buddy a nickname for the name Robert? If it isn't, what is the nickname Buddy for?Weegy:
Here's what a baby name website says:
"It is of English origin, and the meaning of Bud is "brother". Nickname used since medieval times, and modern slang and short form for "buddy" or "brother". It can also refer to a sprouting plant or a young boy. Also possibly from Scotish Gaelic "a bhodaich", meaning "old man". Actor Buddy Ebsen; comedians Bud Abbott, and Buddy Hackett."
I knew a boy called "Buddy," even by teachers, but I never learned if that was his given name or why he was called that. I have never heard it used specifically as a nickname for Robert, though.
Bud Abbott's real name was William, Buddy Hackett's name was Leonard, and Buddy Ebsen was named Christian, so I guess it is just a general nickname that someone chooses, or gets chosen for them.
The nicknames for Robert are Rob, Robby (or Robbie), Bob, Bobby, Bert, and Bertie.Auto Answered|Score 1Weegy:
