A friend who's a Greek Orthodox priest tells me that Haralambos is the equivalent to Robert- that is, 'Robert' is the Anglicized (via Latin) form of Haralambos, the way James/ Seamus is for Iakovos, or William is for Vasilios. I don't have much evidence for this, but a quick Google search reveals English-speakers of Greek origin named Haralambos who go by 'Bob,' the way many folks named Vasilios go by 'Bill.'
