Very sweet name.

I used to despise the name Ruby, but somehow, now, I LOVE IT SO MUCH YOU CAN'T EVEN BELIEVE IT-

If you're looking for a combo, may I suggest Ruby Lou or Alison Ruby?
I love this name. I think it is so pretty. 10/10.
It sounds very upper class!
Ruby isn't one of my favorite names but that doesn't mean I HATE it. I know really nice Rubys and I respect their name!
This name is so cute! Also, Jewelpet, anyone?
According to, this name was already in use in the late Middle Ages [noted -ed]
Alright. Not so good, not so bad, not of my favorites. Feels a little bit too dry. But it's not bad. Sweet name.

This is cute and I love it, but it isn't quite my style and really popular.
A famous bearer is Ruby Franke, famous for being on the 8 Passengers YouTube channel.
Really cute!
My name is Ruby Diane and at 38 I still love my name. It’s been rare in my life to meet another Ruby, but now have two friends who named their baby Ruby. I think I’m confident, fun, sassy...everything a Ruby should be. I am a successful business owner, and in great shape physically, and I’m not sure anyone who’s met me would consider this an old lady or cat lady name. I get a lot of compliments on my name. My nicknames have been Rube, Rubesters, Ru, but mostly I am simply called by my actual name. I’ve never had someone make fun of my name even as a child. 10/10...highly recommend.
It's nice, I like it.
Ruby Gloom is an animated television show.
Despite its opulent meaning, I don't think this is a name that really denotes much class.
Ruby Kurosawa is a character in the anime and franchise Love Live! Sunshine.
Please don’t do this to a poor child. I would absolutely hate being stuck with this name!
I can't see an adult with this name. Better as a nickname or middle name.
Ruby Roundhouse, anyone?
Ruby sounds like the name of an old woman. Or possibly a pet.
This has always been one of my favourites. It’s simple, pretty and I love the nickname Roo/Ru.
Ruby is a badass girl name but suits a lot of nicknames.
Your baby's nickname can be 'Roo' or 'Bee' or 'Rubes' or 'Gemstone'.
I think if you want a successful business woman you could name your kid this. It's a nice name!
Ruby could in theory be a nickname for Reuben.
Like it but nickname rubes, you automatically hear pubes- yuk.
Very cute and pretty.
Rubes could be a nickname.
Super pretty!
Quite pretty!
Beautiful! I used to wish my name was Ruby.
I hate this name. It is so bad and ugly. Everyone named Ruby is awful.

Good day (unless you are named Ruby).
I love this name! You are allowed to hate it “Rubyhater” but you shouldn’t hate everyone with the name!
Ruby is the main character in Lauren Child’s book ‘Ruby Redfort’.
So pretty!
This is a pretty name.
Omg love the name Ruby, my fave actress is Ruby Rose Turner and her name suits her and she is so pretty and I just love it so yea.
And another thing with the name Ruby is I was born in July so my birth stone is a fire Ruby.
My name is Ruby. I have always loved my name! I recommend it!
My name is Ruby Kathleen. It's funny how I used to hate my name because now I love it! It doesn't really suit me though.
I LOVE this name! My birthstone is a Ruby. I wish my name was Ruby. If I wasn't so attached to the name I have, I would change it in a heartbeat. I'd like to give it to a daughter someday, it's wonderful!
It’s too bad more September babies are named Ruby according to
I love this name! So much personal meaning for me... If I ever have a daughter her name will be Ruby Jean.

I had a friend who's middle name was Ruby-Anne. I thought it was so gorgeous.
This is a weird way of describing it but I find this name sort of scrumptious or succulent? It just sounds really whole and saturated. In a good way.
Ugly old women’s name.
Ruby is a really sweet name.
I love gemstone names, and Ruby sounds very sassy!
Thank you all about all these nice comments regarding my and other's names! You are all beautiful people and you shine as bright as the sun and no one can change that! Live on, the name Ruby! Live on! And live on all you beautiful people, Anna, Jacob, Riley etc. Be yourself!
Not exactly THE name, because I find it simple, but the name isn't bad.
Ruby is really growing on me!
Love Ruby!
The main protagonist of the book series The Darkest Minds is named Ruby.
Ruby Rose is a fictional character and the main protagonist in the anime-inspired American TV series RWBY, produced by Rooster Teeth.
Ruby is one of my favourite gemstone names. It's a lovely, short and sweet name, that works well as a first or middle.
Ruby Rose Langenheim, better known as Ruby Rose, is an Australian model, DJ, recording artist, actress, television presenter, and former MTV VJ. Rose emerged in the media spotlight as a presenter on MTV Australia, followed by several high-profile modelling gigs, notably as the face of Maybelline New York in Australia. In addition to her modelling career, she has co-hosted various television shows, namely Australia's Next Top Model and The Project on Network Ten.
I would like this name if it weren't for the song, "Ruby Don't Take Your Love to Town" written by Mel Tillis and recorded by numerous people about a wife who habitually cheats on her disabled veteran husband. I can't get over the negative association.
Ruby is a lovely little name.
My youngest sister is named Ruby, and it's my favorite name out of mine and all of my sister's names. I feel like it has somewhat of a classic-ness to it, like it's going to pop up throughout the years but also has a bit of quirkiness and uniqueness to it. If my sister weren't named this, I would probably consider it for a future daughter.
Ruby was the name of Frodo's paternal grandmother in the Lord of the Rings books. She hailed from the Bolger family.
Attested to 1581 in England.
It's pretty, but I find it a little plain on its own. I once met a girl called Ruby-Dawn, and I just thought that was a surprisingly beautiful combination. So, I'd recommend pairing this name with something else, to make it sound less plain and more ear-catching. I also associate this name with Ruby Rose, and well.... she's just plain gorgeous, ha ha.
This is my name, and although I've often been known as "Buby", it suits me well.
Love this name so much I feel like I'm actually attached to it. You can blame Alexandra Bracken's The Darkest Minds for that.
Recently decided to name my classical guitar this, and it's so fitting.
In the 90's it was edgy and cool. Now it's over-done. It's an okay name.
Ruby is the name of one of my little cousins, she's nicknamed Rube, Ru, and Ruby Tuesday.
There was a character named Ruby on the television series Felicity. She was played by Amy Smart.

I would have loved to name my daughter this, but then my brother-in-law named his dog this (even though he has an Aunt Ruby, another reason we wanted to use it, family significance).
Ruby is such a beautiful, gorgeous name! :D.
Ruby is a demon on the television series "Supernatural."
Ruby Ferguson (1899-1966) was a famous British writer, best known for her books about a horse-loving girl named Jill. Ruby Ferguson was born Rubie Constance Ashby.
Everything red and rich seems to come under this name. It's so beautiful!
Ruby can come from Dollar Scotland because of the child that was found at a door step that was given the name of Ruben Dollar and Ruben is the boy version of Ruby.
I love the name Ruby! I think it's short, sweet name that you don't hear very often. I think it matures well as well. I think Roo would be a sweet, cutesty nickname for Ruby.
Ruby is one of the main charcters of the Canadian-American animated series Max and Ruby.
I would like it if if didn't remind me so much of the Hispanic male name Ruben.
My name is Ruby. When I was born, there weren't many at all, and it was a very uncommon name! People thought it was a very strange choice. Now, almost 15 years later, there are quite a few Rubys in the UK, but I'm yet to meet one around my own age; they're mostly below 10.

I actually really like my name. I didn't when I was younger, but it has good connotations, such as the song "Ruby Tuesday", and a lot of people say "Cool name!". I tend to get "Ru", "Bee" or "Boo".
Ruby Gillis is a character in Anne of Green Gables. She is Anne's friend who dies of tuberculosis at the age of 19.
There's a song called "Ruby, don't take your love to town" by The Killers.
I first heard this name in a British book. The name has stuck with me ever since. Ruby is a gem, a classic name and very feminine without sounding bratty or snobbish. I would definitely name a girl this.
I always thought about one day giving Ruby for my daughter's first or middle name. I think it's pretty yet simple. I don't know why some say that it's overused because I have NEVER met a Ruby. My grandpa loved the gem and so it's dear to me.
I used to love this name, and when I was pregnant with my son it was a name I considered for him before I knew he was a him. Then one day I met a Ruby in real life and she is a wholly unpleasant person with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Don't you hate when that happens?
There was a girl on the PBS kid's show Fetch named Rubye.
I admit! I am a fan of geology. I absolutely love gemstones names and the rich red color often thought of as 'Ruby'.
I love it but it is so common in Australia, second to Lily.
Ruby Catherine Stevens was the birth name of iconic American actress Barbara Stanwyck.
It reminds me of a cute little girl with blonde curly hair.
We are blessed to be having a baby very soon. Her middle name will be Ruby for my paternal great-grandma. I never had the chance to meet her but the stories of her give me a very good impression. We really considered using Ruby as her first name because we like it so!
Aussie TV personality Ruby Rose bears this name.
A very pretty meaning, but the name itself doesn't sound very good; perhaps it's the final "bee" sound that takes away the appeal. I can't picture it on anyone who doesn't have reddish hair, and it sounds rather immature, as well.
I really like this; it's so beautiful! Ruby Marie is a great combo!
A hideous name. Crazy cat-lady... a woman who collects owl statues and dolls-- that's a lot of creep.

Choose a name with class, elegance. A name that will aid your child later in life. A doctor? Lawyer? Successful? No. Even if it is achieved... the name holds back.

As much as I hate this: Rubena is Esperanto for "Like A Ruby," if you must... gag.

Where are these ghastly nature name trends coming from!? Yes, rubies are a stone... ergo, "nature." It is like naming a child "Spring."
This name is in no way part of a trend, to the person who said it was part of a "nature trend"... The name Ruby has been used for centuries, and in fact was a lot more popular about 100 years ago than it is now. It's plenty professional, especially since if you named your daughter Ruby now she'd probably be in competition for a job with a bunch of jaydens, kaydens, kaylees and kylies. This name certainly does have history and is not at all trendy, despite it rising in popularity. There have been tens of thousands of women named Ruby and I'm sure plenty of them have been successful. If you want to bash a name, go bash one that deserves it. Anyways... I think this name is adorable, i'd say by all means use it if you like it. Although it is becoming increasingly popular in Australia ad the UK.
Ruby is my great grandmother's name on my dad's side. If we have another daughter, Ruby is one of my top choices for her. I used to think the name was nice, but it just keeps growing on me more and more. I usually like longer names with nicknames, but Ruby is graceful, sweet and rich without needing to be long. It sounds lovely with multiple different middle names too - bonus!
It is cute. I prefer it as a middle name.
I really like this name; it's so versatile and usable in general. It would suit anybody of any age or personality this name also has the fairly rare attribute of being able to suit a baby or young girl, i.e. to sound girly, young and fresh, but also as the child grows older, to morph into a more responsible, respectable name. I believe that this quality is rare in a name, as more often than not, names can sound either too young or too old, depending on the person's age, but the name Ruby fits all ages perfectly. :)
I think of the show Ruby about the main character who is trying to lose weight. So, I can only imagine this on overweight or at least chubby girls.
I loved (and still love) jewel names when I was a kid, but this was my absolute favorite. I loved the way it sounded, and I thought the jewel itself was beautiful. I used to draw a kind of series when I was a kid, and one of the characters was named Ruby. :)
Really pretty but getting so over-used, same as Lily.
To me Ruby reminds me of a cheerful, independent, young girl or woman. It also sounds quite pretty.
It's cute.
Singer Rod Stewart has a daughter named Ruby. She was born in 1987.
This was my my maternal great-grandmother's name. Her name was Ruby Lee, which was apparently a fairly popular combination when she was born. I think the name is sweet and pretty and brings to mind someone who is generous and kind but also strong and determined.
A classic scullery maid's name turned hipsterish for the 2000's. I suppose there is nothing wrong with that but for those who find it stylish and classic it was more an 'aspirational' name for poor working class Victorians than anything else at the turn of the century. You wouldn't have found it much amongst the 'snooty' rich.

Irrespective of that, I don't like it.
Ruby Dee, famous African-American actress.
I have always loved this name. Even though it is very high in popularity for my tastes, I am considering Ruby for my next daughter. It is simple, classic, solid, and feminine.
A big meh. I don't think there's a more expected girls name in England right now. It had some vibe once, now it's just meh.
Generally seen as down market in the UK by virtue of it's excessive use. In some parts of the US it's still considered toothless hillbilly along with Pearl. It's nothing to write home about and I've always found rubies gaudy.
Ruby - short, sweet, and simple. What more could you ask for?
A hooker with a heart of gold? It's ok. Ridiculously overused in certain areas.
I think this is a stunningly gorgeous name that would fit a female person quite well, and I think it would be a good name for a pet rabbit.
Ruby is a character from Guardians of Ga'Hoole. She is a short-eared owl (it's an owl story) and is in the Chaw of Chaws, an important group in the story.
I agree! It makes a much better pet form for Reuben. It's a little strange for a girl in my opinion. Sure, I can see it on a girl, but I really don't like it for one.
I'm surprised at its trendiness, consider it a little backwoods trashy and think it makes a better nickname for the masculine name Ruben/Reuben.
I really love this name because to me it seems classy, elegant, and sweet.
Nice meaning, still the name is pretty boring.
The name of Charlotte Church's new daughter: Ruby Megan.
The singer Suzanne Vega (one of her hit songs was "My name is Luka") has a daughter named Ruby. She was born in 1994.

Ruby Mae is a beautiful name I always loved the name Ruby. Ruby is the name of the main character of my story In The Eyes Of Ruby.
Ruby Thewes is the name of the incredible character in "Cold Mountain" (the book as well as the film). Also, it's the name of one of the members of Jupiter's clan in the original "The Hills Have Eyes". I haven't seen the remake so I can't say about that, but in the original at least, Ruby is truly the gym of the family because she is so humane and kind. One of my favorite characters.
Really like this name, it's short and sweet.
Yet another song with this beautiful name: "Ruby" by the Kaiser Chiefs. I believe the song reached number one on the UK charts.
The only man I have heard Ruby used for is for the National Hunt jockey, Ruby Walsh.
We call the Ruby I know rubarb. She doesn't mind.
Ruby Cresent is the name of a fictional character in the manga 666 Satan.
Old-fashioned but terribly sweet. I love it.
Ruby Bridges was one of the first black girls to go to an all white school in New Orleans.
Quite often this name is still thought of as an old lady's name, but in 2006 the name shot up to no.4 in the top 10 in England and Wales. A lot of little Rubys born that year were named after the teen tearaway and gangster's daughter Ruby Allen in the British soap EastEnders.
I call my friend Ruby, this is because she has fiery red hair and Ruby fits her personality more than Crystal does.
I love this name. It's sweet and pretty.
It sounds pretty and rich.
Toby Mcguire (the guy who plays Spiderman) named his first daughter Ruby Sweetheart. (Yes, her middle name is Sweetheart) This is because his wife's grandmother or aunt, I think, called her 'Sweetheart', and so they made a tribute to that person. I think it sounds so adorable!
I have always known Ruby for a girl's name. It just doesn't really sound right masculine. Sorry.
The real name of 40's actress Barbara Stanwyck (Double Indentity, The Lady Eve, Ball of Fire) was Ruby Stevens.
My great grandmother (my maternal grandfather's mother) bore this name, although she was not especially fond of her name: "Ruby Lee White". I'm ambivalent about the name, but I like it because it's from a family member and that it's unique without being strange and doesn't sound ditzy.
Such a sweet name, very natural and makes you smile.
Ruby Bridges is a neat girl to learn about. I enjoyed the movie. Ruby fits the sweet little girl very well.
Thru The Eyes Of Ruby is a song by Smashing Pumpkins.
Ruby is a unique name, it kind of grows on you in a good way. It is pretty and feminine too.

I plan to use this someday, I adore it. I have a great great aunt named Ruby, called Bea (bee), and she is the nicest lady in the world. I love the name!
I think this is a beautiful name. This is my daughter's name, also my auntie's.
