  • Do you think it's a coincidence that Red and Robin seemingly share a last name? Of course the writers of the show did not come up with the names for these characters, but do you think they will play off of that? Not much is known about either of their families, and they have an apparent lack of contact with each other.

    • Little Red Riding Hood is based on a Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Robin Hood is based on English folklore. They're really not related at all. But hey, you never know.

    • I think it could work as a plot twist for Ruby's father. It would get very confusing though. But we never really got to hear anything about her father right? Or was he eaten by Anita or something? It would expand Henry's family again if Robin and Regina decide to marry xD

    • "Hood" has not actually been confirmed as her actual last name. I mean, it could be, but nothing has been established on that yet. She's officially credited on the press releases as "Red Riding Hood", but by name, she's only ever been informally called "Red" by other characters within the show.

    • The "Hood" is not a last name. Red Riding Hood is thusly named because she wears a red hood. Robin Hood was, in earlier translations, "Robin of the Hood", because he wore one. They are not last names. As we've seen, very few people in the Enchanted Forest seem to have surnames.

    • Granny's Enchanted Forest counterpart is also referred to as Widow Lucas, so I personally assumed Red's last name might be Lucas as well. I agree with Utter. In this case Hood refers to Red's cloak.

      Back in the Enchanted Forest saving the Evil Queen and Snow from the flying monkey Robin Hood simply introduced himself as Robin of Locksley. However, the Sheriff of Nottingham referred to him as Robin Hood in EP 219 Lacey.

      When (EP 319) Regina tells Henry about her new boyfriend Regina says: "He's name is Robin Hood." Henry answers "Wait, Robin Hood?" asking if he understood correctly. Robin Hood enters. Overhearing Henry's last remark he says "At your service."

      So, if it's not his actual last name Robin Hood is clearly accsustomed to be called by that name.

    • True that

    • Yup, his name real name may be Robin (insert last name) but Hood is just something they added to it I guess.

    • I mean, if someone calls you something forever and ever, you start answering to it XD

      And I'm sure that there's a bit of "in this world, I'm a legend! AWESOME!" going on for Robin. I feel like he'd enjoy that.

    • I'm not very familiar as to the reason why Robin introduced himself to Snow White and Regina in the EF as "Robin of Locksley". I assumed it was an implication of something from the original Robin Hood tale, but I wasn't sure what exactly.

      Robin of Locksley is Robin Hood's real name. Hood is just a nickname, and a shortened version of Robin of the Hood. In folklore, Robin was the son of the Earl of Locksley.... or something like that. OUaT's Robin Hood is probably a nobleman, as well.

      Personally, I believe introducing himself "Robin of Locksley"  Robin simply might have added where he was born. I don't know how many other Robins there are in the Enchanted Forest, so in order to be remembered easier (whatever good it does you if you're a thief) he's the Robin from Loxley. 

      Inspired by you I've done some searching and I found a interesting website which really has collected many, many information about Robin Hood. 

      Bold Outlaw

      This website says that the Sloane manuscript from 1600 Anno Dommini states that Robin Hood was born in a village called Loxley.

      A town called Loxley can still be found near Sheffield, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom. Back in the 12th century  the area had large forests to the south-east extending as far as Nottinghamshire. Another possibility might be a  town called Loxley in Warwickshire.  Surnames are often derived from a place.

      Surname Locksley


      In the 2010 movie Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe telling the background why Robin Hood became an outlaw (mostly rather fictional I think) an common archer who fought for the late King Richard on his crusade is asked by a dying knight to bring his father back the longsword the knight took with him. Having no heir the grieving lord decides to adopt the archer as his son. In the process he inheritates the lord's title "of Loxley" as well.

    • Robin Hood the story is set in England and back in the medieval era people said their first names and then their fathers name or "of (birthplace)" Or they are famous for something like a signature hood maybe. 

      I don't think there is any connection between the "hoods" in Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood. Like others said, Red always wears a red hood so people call her because of her signature hood, same as Robin. 


      Anyone find it interesting to note that on Season four's page Red Riding Hood is under Guest Starring? I thought Meghan moved on to starring in Intellengence.
