Name for Wemyss Bay Station statue

Friends of Wemyss Bay Station are grateful all those who suggested names for the boy whose statue is on the station concourse. There were over 200 responses.
There were many good ideas, but we have decided to adopt one particularly popular name, because it is especially appropriate to Wemyss Bay.
There are several claims as to how Wemyss Bay got its name, but the one we like is that it is named after an eighteenth century fisherman who lived locally – Robert, or Bobby, Wemyss. The statue is, therefore, named after him.
It is unlikely that a small Scottish boy from the 1950s would have been known as Robert (unless, perhaps, he came from Kelvinside) so our statue is Bobby.
