    You got me curious about that, so I looked him up on Wikipedia.

    Apparently ballads about Robin Hood appeared in England in the 15th century.  That's a century after Chaucer!  You have to wonder how much they could have known in those days about something that happened 400 years earlier.

    Whether the name is that of a real person is unknown. The cause he was apparently a part of did in fact occur which helps bring us further away from mythology. A name like that doesn't just randomly pop up. Mythology is for instance.. a Minotaur, robin hood is far from mythology. It could just be a name given to some vigilante by the poor and needy. if you're fighting against tyrants you'd probably be better off doing it under the cover of a fake name as to avoid giving the enemy any leads.
