Ruby is the name of a red-colored to pinkish gemstone. The name comes from Latin rubeus meaning “red”. Though the name is traditionally a girl’s name, it has been used for boys in the past, which is why I’m listing it as a unisex name.
Ruby could also be a nickname for Rueben, a male Hebrew name meaning “behold, a son”.
