In the Bible, Ruben was one of Joseph's brothers. He was the one who suggested they cast Joseph into a pit rather than kill him themselves. In turn, Joseph was spared, although that may not have been the intention.

I really like this name. I imagine a Ruben as a very reliable, compassionate and sweet boy. The meaning is lovely too.
