Aruna is not quite ruby in connotation.
It could be from R to rise or go along a path, and is connected with the rising sun. Its oldest meanings are red/reddish-brown as opposed to the darkness of night. In classical mythology, the main meaning is the charioteer who carries the sun across the sky on its daily travel, and personifies dawn; loosely, it means the red sun itself. It has a number of other technical meanings and names a number of other mythological characters.
