Ruby or Emilia

Our baby girl is due in 3 weeks and we are yet to decide on a name for her. It's looking like we will either go for Ruby or Emilia (Emmie as a nn). Her middle name will be Robyn after DHs dad, although I didn't like the similar sounds of Ruby followed by Robyn (so please don't tell me you like this as it's a definite no 🤣) SO she will either be:

Ruby Emilia Robyn Allen
Or
Emilia Robyn Allen

Which do you prefer?? I've also been told there's a Ruby Allen in eastenders 🙈 (I don't watch it) and I can't decide if this bothers me or not.

Honest opinions welcome

I love Emilia. However I don’t think it goes with Allen. I’m Not that fussed on Ruby, but It’s a nice name and goes great with Allen. However Ruby Allen is a character from Eastenders if that bothers you

I prefer Emilia though I like Ruby too. I do know lots of Ruby's if that is a concern

Emelia.

The 'Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby -Ahahaa' thing would annoy me.

Plus I teach two and they are both horrors.

Ruby is nicer, but DS has two in his class alone, so you need to be prepared for her to be "Ruby A" to distinguish her from the others, it's really popular where we are. There are a couple in the year above I believe too.

He's also in a year with "Connor M", "Connor C" "Connor J" and "Connor P" Grin

I love Emilia so would definitely go for that. Emilia Robyn is our name if we have a DD so I'm a bit biased though Wink
