I like Ruby Lynn or Ruby Jade. I personally think Karenza is too long a middle name for Ruby (although I do love the name itself).

I also liked Ruby May but as another poster mentioned it is very common for a middle name at the moment

How about no middle name.... Thats unusual!!!!!

I'm not suggesting they are necessarily are of this generation, although they are undoubtedly going through a massive popularity surge - hardly anyone of our generation has those middle names (a lot of Louises and Janes for us).

My point was that if someone goes to the trouble of starting a thread in baby names looking for middle name suggestions, suggesting Rose/May/Grace is like suggesting the sky is either blue or white. They kind of go without saying.

My Nan was Ruby May. It really gets to me when people go on about May/Rose etc being of this generation.

They are names that have ALWAYS been about. Get over it.

FWIW I like Ruby Faye or Ruby Rose.

My Ruby is Ruby Olive, after her great-great Granny.

Yeah, it seem the OP did!

I just find it hilarious when people come on and suggest those names specifically for middle names - and actually even more hilarious when OPs like them - are there really people left in the world that need Rose/May/Grace suggested to them?! grin

Sorry Don I love May, though admittedly I was intending to use it more than 20 years ago well before it became popular. I think the OP liked it too (not offended BTW).

Sorry, family joke.

Ruby Ruby Roo!

Do people really need the names May, Rose or Grace suggested to them when asking for middle name inspiration?

95% of girls from this generation have the middle name May, Rose or Grace - they are so over-used it's untrue. Everybody knows these names - surely it's time to think outside the box even a tiny bit.

Karenza, for instance, is fabulous. It's different and refreshing, and timeless.

Apologies to anyone I've offended, I'm just so over these middle names!!

Your not 'hour'...

Before reading your suggestions Catherine popped into my head so of hour three I'd go for Karenza.

If you have a long surname a single syllable name would be best for the middle name I think.

Mae/May is probably the most common middle name choice with Ruby. Ruby Jade would be nice if it wasn't a combination of two different stones that wouldn't actually look nice together! Ruby Faye is like Ruby Mae but less common. Ruby Leigh? I can't think of many middle names! It's the problem that I always have!

I was going to say Mae or Grace too!

How about

Ruby Adele
Ruby Sophia
Ruby Mireille
Ruby Alexa

I don't think you could have Ruby Lily or Ruby Chloe as they have same 2 syllables with stress on first. Like Karenza though. Pretty and unusual.

Quick update... Ruby May has been vetoed :-(

Ruby Karenza is a (just about) maybe...

Love the idea of Ruby Tuesday lol :-)
