What do you think of Reuben on a girl, with the nickname Ruby? Would she need a really girly middle name to make up for it?

Welcome to the baby names board, and to JM!

I dislike Reuben on a girl, period. Matching it with the girly middle name wouldn't help much, since middle names are rarely used. It's a boy's name. if you want to call her Ruby, I would name her Ruby.

Reuben is all boy. And I would assume that Reuben is a boy if I heard the name. Matching it with a girly MN does not help it.

If you love Ruby use Ruby. Don't slap her with a boy name just to give her a girl NN.

I don't think that this is a name that a girl could pull off.

I love Reuben on a boy! Don't care for it on a girl at all. Sorry. I agree with the 'name her Ruby' responses.

I think you should just name her Ruby in that case.

Forgot to suggest the very pretty Rubena (roo BEE nah)

Very nice way to get a longer name for Ruby.

I would drop Reuben (which is very masculine) and name her Ruby.

Ruby Katherine
Ruby Elisabeth
Ruby Genevieve
Ruby Grace
Ruby Claire
Ruby Juliet
Ruby Cecilia
Ruby Arabella
Ruby Victoria
Ruby Sophia
Ruby Luciana

Ruby can be paired easily with a nice middle name too!

I don't really care for Reuben for either, but especially on a girl. I think Ruby is cute

I definitely wouldn't do this at all (Reuben is all boy to me), but if I did, I would spell it Rubyn.
