Ruby

Associated with the precious stone that ultimately derived from Latin ruber "red," the birthstone of July. Also considered the short form of the biblical name, Reuben, meaning "behold, a son" in Hebrew. It first became known for actress and famous tap performer Ruby Keeler whose breakthrough performance in the 1933 musical, "42nd Street" led to its top 50 ranking. Also inspired by Emmy award-winning actress and activist Ruby Dee whose extensive career has lasted over seven decades. Along with being a trendy choice for parents because of its "y" spelling, it may be preferred more recently because of the popular children's television show, "Max and Ruby," based on the books by Rosemary Wells. , A Ruby Jewel
