It signifies a ruby jewel or the color red. Some favorite nicknames for Ruby are Ru or Bee.

The name Ruby sits at number 95 on the popularity list for girl names for 2021. A Ruby is also the birthstone for the month of July, so it can be a doubly good name if your daughter is born in this month.

Some famous Rubys are actress and activist Ruby Dee (born Ruby Ann Wallace) and actress Ruby Rose Langenheim (who goes by just Ruby Rose).
