Curly Bob's real name?

Recommended Posts

stef_92

Today I just came across this page at wikia

http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Curly_Bob

 

For some reason it's written that the real name of Curly Bob is Robert? I was surprised and I read the whole page. Yet there isn't any proof or refrence stating it. He doesn't appear in other games, neighter later after Cutting The Grass since he dies.

I'm aware that wikia is not the most reliable source of information but can someone confirm if this is true or not? And if it's true where his real name was mentioned?

They might taking the nickname "Bob" from Robert, like Robert De Niro himself, sometimes Martin Scorsese called Robert "Bobby" De Niro.

It's possible... I'm don't live in an English speaking country and I didn't know that Bobby may be short for Robert :D . So it's just like Toni Cipriani's full name is Antonio Cipriani and they call him Tony for short. But unlike Curly Bob there are scenes in LCS where people actually call him Antonio. Curly Bob appears only in GTA3 and there isn't any scene (or text line) on which he is called Robert.

Sounds like more of that "GTA Wikia speculation" we've all been hearing about.

 

I can see how one can reasonably conclude that his real name is Robert. However, that information has never been officially disclosed (at least not to my knowledge) and should not be written as fact.

Rockstar probably didn't find it interesting imagining a real name for such a secondary character.

I think it is indeed Robert. Because Bob/Bobby is short for Robert. Or maybe it is one of those weird names like Bobsley or Bobba.

Bob is a legitimate name. It doesn't have to be short for anything. :bored:

It's more sh*tty wikia speculation like what I made a thread about.

Plus, just because your nickname is BOB doesn't mean your name has to be ROBERT. I know a guy who goes by BRANDON but is actually named MERLE
