I think they instead just wanted an amalgamation of the multiple robins which play such a big part of the comics. John is Dick's middle name, and Blake is reminiscent of Drake. Plus all the hothead references.

I don't see the big deal with a 'made up' Robin either. Miller did it in TDKR.
Sure it's good for a Nolan movie. But it should stay there and end there. When done right Robin (Richard Grayson) is a good character. Just because other films have done poor jobs of ALL of these characters doesn't mean another film series couldn't show some improvement.
