Rue has gone from Golden Girls actress to Hunger Games heroine. This botanical name is also a double word name, meaning regret in English and street in French, and has real potential as a middle name.
Actress Rue McClanahan, who played Blanche in The Golden Girls, was born Eddi-Rue, named for her parents' middle names Edwin and Rheua-Nell.
Actress Sara Rue made her surname the middle name of daughter Talulah Rue.
The herbal plant Rue was introduced by the Romans and has been prized for its medicinal properties--the ancients believed it guarded against epilepsy and vertigo and improved the sharpness of vision.
