Middles for Ruby

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! :slightly_smiling_face:
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] is my favorite name in the whole world. Everytime I see or hear it, it makes me smile.
It was my great grandma’s name, and she was the greatest woman I’ve ever known. If I’m ever lucky enough to have a daughter, I’d love to name her [name_u]Ruby[/name_u].
The only problem is, I have never been able to find the perfect middle.
I currently have [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f] on my list. I love the sound of them together, and [name_f]Marigold[/name_f] is another special name to me. I feel like it may be too colorful/wordy though.
In the past, I’ve had [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Elanor[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f], and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] on my list. I still love them, but they just don’t feel ‘right’ if that makes sense.

I’d love to hear some suggestions, if you have any! I love all types of names, so not just one set style. I usually like nature names in the middle, but again, that would probably be too wordy. So I’m open to anything!

Also, I’d like to know your opinions on [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Elanor[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f], and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]! Which one is your favorite? [name_f]Do[/name_f] any of them sound like a good fit for [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]?

Thanks in advance for any help!! I hope everyone is having a really nice day!

I think [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] is so cute! I used to want to be called [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] :grinning:

I have the same problem with my favorite girls’ names too. The perfect middle is hard.

[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f]- I like the flow, it’s very pretty but I don’t love [name_f]Marigold[/name_f]
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Elanor[/name_f]- I think [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]/[name_f]Elinor[/name_f] is a better spelling, but very cute vintage vibes
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]- Not sure if the flow is there but [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] is gorgeous
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]- This is my least favorite, I just don’t like it with [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]

Some suggestions-

[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] is on my list too, I think its precious. I really like [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f] and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Matilda[/name_f], but I think [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] is a little clunky and doesn’t roll off the tongue so well (for me, at least!).

Oh my gosh, thank you so much everyone!!

That’s adorable! I would’ve loved to have been named [name_u]Ruby[/name_u], too. Though I think you got lucky, [name_f]Abigail[/name_f] is a beautiful name! :slightly_smiling_face:

This spelling is actually from [name_m]Lord[/name_m] of the Rings! It’s the name of a beautiful flower, and means ''sun star"! the books/films are super important to me, so I’ve always wanted to use a name that had a connection to them. I like [name_f]Elanor[/name_f] because it’s subtle, and also my other great grandma was named [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] so it feels like the perfect name. I love all spellings of the name, though!
I looove your suggestion of [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]. [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] is one of my favorite names, but I’ve never thought to pair it with [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]. It’s super sweet and cute. I also really like [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Margo[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Fiona[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Helena[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Leora[/name_f] and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]/[name_u]Ellis[/name_u]. Also love [name_f]Nell[/name_f], [name_f]Maxine[/name_f], [name_f]Nora[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], and [name_f]Clara[/name_f] so you chose great names!
It’s funny that you suggested [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] too, that’s actually my niece’s name!
Thank you for your suggestions!!

@EmaleeAnna [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Marina[/name_f] and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Aster[/name_f] are great! I’ve never thought of using [name_m]Brooks[/name_m] on a girl, but I love that too! Thank you!

Thank you! I love seeing more love for [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] :slightly_smiling_face: and I’m glad to hear you love some of my combos, thank you so much!

Oh, this list is so so beautiful!! I love so many off of it. [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] is gorgeous, I worry it might have the same issue as [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f] though with being too wordy, maybe? [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] is so perfect. I love the name [name_f]Theodora[/name_f], but if I have a son, I’d like to name him [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]. It’s a shame I can’t use both!
I also really love [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Margaux[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Aveline[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Freya[/name_f], and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]! You seriously came up with so many beautiful combos, thanks again!!!

I love seeing [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] on other peoples lists! I feel like its such an underappreciated name. and thank you!
your suggestions are beautiful!
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Primrose[/name_f] is stunning. I love [name_f]Primrose[/name_f], and the imagery this gives off is perfect! I also love [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Faye[/name_f], and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f]. Thanks so much!!

Thank you! :blush:
I love the suggestion of [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]! It’s beautiful. [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Autumn[/name_f] was actually the very first combo I came up with when I first joined nameberry. I’d forgotten about it until now!
I also like [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Brynn[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_u]Ember[/name_u], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Faye[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f], and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Rowena[/name_f]! I like the vibes of [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_u]Dylan[/name_u] too, but [name_u]Dylan[/name_u] is my cousin’s name. Thank you for your suggestions!

@Johannaa thank you!! I love [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Amalia[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Lavender[/name_f], and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_u]Willow[/name_u]. I really like [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] too, I just worry that it’s too ‘b’ heavy.

@CecilyG thank you! I love [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] too, that’s why I originally paired them together. I understand what you mean though! [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_u]Jean[/name_u] is great, but I have a cousin named [name_u]Jean[/name_u]. I’ve considered [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] (similar to [name_u]Jean[/name_u]) but I thought it felt too plain.

That’s exactly how I feel about it! :blush:
Ohh, so many great choices, thank you!! I especially love [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Luella[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Soraya[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f], and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f].

[name_f]My[/name_f] fav [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] combo has always been [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Magdalene[/name_f]. Out of the ones you already have, I really like [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f].

@[name_f]Pansy[/name_f] Oh, [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Magdalene[/name_f] is beautiful! and thank you!!

Not sure this will be your style at all…but I LOVE [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_u]Rae[/name_u]. [name_m]Just[/name_m] had to suggest it. :grin:

I agree that [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f] might be a little too colorful. Hopefully one day you can use [name_f]Marigold[/name_f] in another way. I love when people use names that have a special personal meaning.

I think [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] is beautiful. Here are some other ideas:

[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]

[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]

[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_u]Rae[/name_u] is so cute! I’m a sucker for alliteration, so it’s a good suggestion! I’m not sure it’s my style, but it did make me smile :blush:

that’s what I figured. I’ll have to keep playing around with other names to find the perfect match for [name_f]Marigold[/name_f]! I love that too, I’m always trying to find new ways to incorporate names with meaning. I have a name with no meaning behind it, besides my parents just liking it, and I always wished there was more to it.

thank you! I’m glad there’s more love for [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f].
I love your suggestions of [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f], and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]! [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] is so sweet too, and a combo I’m considered because I love [name_f]Jane[/name_f], but I worry [name_f]Jane[/name_f] is too much of a filler.
Thank you again!!
