Well, I think it is. It is an Anglicization of English names of men, where the English name was originally the name of a god, not a man as the English had understood it and thought. (This is related to the confusion of Greek and Latin names of gods, which were often male and thus referred to women as “sisters” and “brothers” in the Greek and Latin language). As in the case of God; in the English language, “Beth” and “Christ’s” have been pronounced “bess, kyeth, kryth” (but only when the English were speaking Latin, so that I don’t actually think it is “bess’ or “bess”.)
When the English were speaking Latin, “Beth” is so frequently pronounced as “Beth”, but when spoken the same way as this Bob, the pronunciation is “Bess.” But the “B” is not pronounced in the Bob’s name or in his epithet either, since there is no “B” in his name, or at least no “B”.
So how do we get a “bob”? The obvious answer is by using the Latin word “Bob”. Another question is, “How did the Latin “Bob” come to be the equivalent of a “Bob”? I don’t have a good answer for that except that the Latin word for “bob” would have become “Bob” long before the English “Bob”.
It appears that “Bess” and “Brisco” were popular, and that this Bob named “Bess” was often used as a nickname.
It is possible that Bob was named after some “Bess” or “Bob”, possibly something in the region of England, but this is more speculative than I am able to explain. And in any case, as this Bob goes on to have many more wives than can be accounted for by his family, it may be that a nickname “Bob” was originally “Bess,” and this name became another nickname (Bob is so prevalent in “Bess”) for another person.
The next person might have been a “Jack” or “Bob”, since “Jack” seems to be so widespread in English.
The last of the “Bobs” might be a “Liz” (pronounced “Liz” in the “Liz” Bob).
The name “Bob” in our current language and time, being
