Legendary Primer - R is for Robin Hood

Brian Ness

Most people know the legend of Robin Hood - rob the rich to give to the poor. Whether Robin Hood was a real person is still highly debated, and most think it was loosely based on a person. Did you know Robin was a common diminutive of Robert, and people called Hood was a nickname for a Hooder, or a man who makes hoods? So, likely the person we know as Robin Hood was probably Robert the Hood-Maker!
