    People call you "Bobby", because Bobby is a diminutive form of "Robert".  Bobby, Bob, and Rob are all diminutives or nicknames for Robert.

    Perhaps you'd prefer 'Beto'.

    That may be your Pet name adopted by them may be from childhood itself.

    It's a nickname for Robert. If you want to be called Robert you need to tell them that ROBERT is the only thing you will reply to.

    No one has ever told me why Bob is short for Robert.  don;t know why.  So sometimes when someone is a child they call them bobby.  Robert is called Rob, Robby, Bob, and Bobby.  at some point a person chooses which one feels like them.  When you do, tell people what you want to be called. And do not let anyone get by calling any other name.
