Rusty can be a nickname for Russell.

In the book "Back Home" by Michelle Magorian the girl named Virginia is called Rusty because of her red hair. My husband found this ridiculous, he says Rusty can only be a boy. I'm not sure, I think it could be a girl too.

A friend of my mother originally wanted to name me this, but Ma (bless her!) held her ground and said "Have your own red-haired son and name him Rusty!" I'm glad that she didn't name me Rusty, because I do not like this name.

Rusty Cartwright, a character in the television series "Greek." He's kind of geeky, but ya gotta love him.

Just imagine saying 'hello, I'm Rusty'.

Somehow I feel that I will be the minority, but... "Rusty" appeals to me as a masculine nickname greatly! That being said, I would also consider it (strictly as a diminutive) for a female.

While it is undoubtedly juvenile, it is fun enough to transfer into young-adulthood, adulthood, and eventually onto an elder (granted that he possesses a professional name, as well.)
My current forename of choice is "Rosario," though I feel that it would be acceptable for "Rodolfo," among others.

I really love the name Rusty for a girl, like in the movie Footloose.

This was the name of my cat, who unfortunately died a couple years ago from a liver disease (as most overweight cats will). He was given the name "Rusty" because of his rich orange coat. Due to his tub-of-lard appearance and general laziness, he was also affectionately referred to as "Tubby" and "Garfield" (again, because of his coat).

I already couldn't take this seriously as a person's name, but now I also cannot separate Rusty from a big orange furball.

I've only known it as a nickname for Russell.

I think this would be a kinda cool nickname for Russell, but only when young.
