really nice - but if you care about such things there are quite a few of them about.

MamaG Thu 10-Jul-08 12:37:50

i like it, there are a lot of them at the moment though (don't you whether you'd worry about that!)

I like it but there are lots and lots and lots of them. I do like it.

Great if your surname is Tuesday grin

Very common these days

I think of this. Which is a good thing, IMO, though.

v nice - but v popular in my neck of the woods.
Depends if that would bother you

Pearl?

EffiePerine Thu 10-Jul-08 12:42:58

Nice but popular.

puppydavies Thu 10-Jul-08 12:43:04

pretty name, popular

dp suggested it along with pearl i was a little surprised until i realised they're both programming languages hmm suppose i should be glad he didn't suggest solaris or bsd...

RubyRioja Thu 10-Jul-08 13:16:00

Beryl?
Great (same as pearl apparantly)
Ione
Opaline

following the precious stone theme, rather than programming

RubyRioja Thu 10-Jul-08 13:16:30

Doh ! Greta

i like Ruby, but prefer Pearl if we are going down the gemstone theme

yes, it is popular, but if you like it, go for it

Boco Thu 10-Jul-08 13:31:33

Lol, was wondering about the name 'Great'. Especially good if your last name is Tits.

Ruby is gorgeous, but as everyone said, very common nowadays, which you may or may not care about?

RubyRioja Thu 10-Jul-08 13:41:42

Margaret, Marguerite, Peggy, Daisy, Margot all mean pearl appararently

We considered it, but felt it was too popular, there was even one on Eastenders at the time...

Actually when considering it, it was on short list for middle names, in the end we used Rose and a family surname for dd's two middle names. Rose just works after her name so well!!!

but I can just picture a little dark haired girl being called Ruby, it would be perfect....

elmoandella Thu 10-Jul-08 13:48:22

i like it. it's not common in my area at all.

elle23 Thu 10-Jul-08 15:11:07

DD2 called Ruby... blonde, blue eyes, not exactly what you think of when a child is called Ruby. We chose the name because we liked it, and also the song (Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby) was playing when i went into false labour...maybe not a great reason, but i'm pleased with the choice. the eastenders ruby had long passed wehn DD2 was born so forgot about that...dont know anyone else called ruby, not well known where i am, depends on where u live i guess... although our DD2 was born few days BEFORE charlotte church had her daughter. we'd already named ours, but if we hadn't i would have changed my mind based on the fact that CCs DD has same first name....

i LOVE this name - DH wasnt having any of it - its one of the top on the baby names list now

AbbeyA Fri 11-Jul-08 13:22:20

Loathe it! I immediately imagine an oversized middle aged/elderly woman! It goes with Pearl and Beryl.
However I might use it for a pet.

My Neice is called Ruby and she is lovely. I believe it is popular with celebrities. Philip Schofields daughter is Ruby I think and I'm sure there are a few more, can't remember them at the moment!

It is far too popular-along with Lily, Kitty and Mae.
