Christopher Robin Milne & Birthday

August 21, 2012 by  

Christopher Robin Milne & Birthday, Christopher Robin Milne (21 August 1920 – 20 April 1996) was the son of author A. A. Milne. As a child, he was the basis of the character Christopher Robin in his father’s Winnie-the-Pooh stories and in two books of poems.
Christopher Robin Milne was born at 11 Mallord St, Chelsea, London at 8 A.M. to author Alan Alexander Milne and Dorothy Milne (née de Sélincourt). His parents had expected the baby to be a girl, and had chosen the name Rosemary.

When it turned out to be a boy, they initially intended to call him Billy, but decided that this would be too informal. They gave him two first names to help distinguish him from other Milnes, each parent choosing a name. Although he was officially named Christopher Robin, his parents often referred to him as “Billy”. When he began to talk, he pronounced his surname as Moon instead of Milne.

After that, his family would often call him “Billy”, “Moon”, or “Billy Moon”. In later life, he became known as simply “Christopher”.
