Named for James Robey a real estate developer, who lived on the corner of Robey and Washington Street on the city's West Side in 1863.
According to two articles from the Chicago Tribune in 1927 the origins of the Robey Street name are vague, but seem to point to it being named after James Robey who was a squatter/farmer in the area and eventually opened a roadhouse around Madison and present day Damen from 1861-1863.
Interestingly enough, Robey Street appears to have been previously called "Long John" after "Long" John Wentworth former Mayor and owner of the "Brighton Trotting Park" which was a horse track in operation in the 1850s and 1860s on the current site of McKinley Park.
