In the sentence "I gave bob, ross." Is ross the direct or indirect object? ?

Bob Ross is the name of an artist (painter) who passed away a few years ago. "I gave (a) Bob Ross" would mean they gave someone a Bob Ross painting.

No. What the phrase seems to mean is that you are talking to ross, and explaining that you gave bob to someone else

In that sentence 'Ross' is the direct object. In such a simple (basic) sentence like this one (where the verb you have chosen is set up for both types of object), stripped to its essentials, indirect [whatever part of speech in that slot] comes before [direct] object. "I give [i.o.] my dog [d.o.] beef-bones." "The historians gave [i.o.] that time period [d.o.] the following name, [new clause:] which has become the customary term ..." etc., etc.

That makes no sense. Explain what you're trying to say.
