What about doing both, like finding a gem name that contains Ru, Rue, or Ruth (or the 'roo' sound)? That way you can do both and still have a single MN if that's what you prefer. If you don't care for any of these or have any ideas, let me know and I can try to help.
Some suggestions I have found are:
Fairuz - Variant spelling of Arabic Fayruz, meaning "turquoise"
Fairuza - English name derived from the Persian word firouzeh, meaning "turquoise"
Fayruz - Arabic gem name derived from the Persian word firouzeh, meaning "turquoise"
M`eraud (it's supposed to be an accent over the e, but I don't know how to do that with my laptop) - French surname transferred to forename use, derived from the word emeraude, meaning "emerald"
Rubena - Esperanto name meaning "like a ruby"
Rubie - Variant spelling of English Ruby, meaning "ruby"
Rubina - Elaborated form of English Ruby, meaning "ruby"
Rubye - Variant spelling of English Ruby, meaning "red" or "ruby"
Ruri - Japanese name meaning "emerald"
Or maybe some ideas for a boy if you have one:
Rutilio - Spanish name meaning "he who shines", it has the Ru and the meaning makes me think of gems because they shine
Feruzi - Swahili name meaning "turquoise"
Iruka - Japanese name meaning "gem" or "ornament"
Kasprus - Persian name meaning "treasure" or "treasurer", treasure makes me think of gems
Maruta - Sanskrit or Indian (India Indian) name meaning "shining"
Petrus - Greek name meaning "stone"
And a couple of unisex names:
Arula - Sanskrit name meaning "shining as the sun" or "brilliant", makes me think of gems shining
Rui - Japanese name meaning "gem"Love is Friendship caught on Fire
Fur babies: Onyx (cat), Tigger (cat), Clara (dog)

LOL @ Poptart... I thought of that too, but thats actually not a turn off for me - it might have been once, but we spent so much time at the Ronald McDonald house when Brandon was in NICU, I kinda dont mind including that association.
My husband seems to be more against the double middle name idea than I am, but the issue I'm having with even trying to convince him is that I just don't LIKE the two together lol. His family we don't associate with, so it would only be for his benefit.. and I was thinking that maybe using the nn Rue (since its a flower anyway) might be a kind of special pet name we can give her on occasion.. like buttercup or sugarplum? Meh maybe not. But I think I'm just stuck on using Jewel as-is (McKenna too). Maybe subconsciously I was looking for the okay to not use Rue/Ruth because I feel kind of selfish, but if he loves the name and hasn't asked to use Rue/Ruth, I guess its ok to just go with it eh. I wish I liked the name Winifred, though because that was actually his Dads middle name and we were very close to him.
So yeah, the urge to cram as many names as possible in there is tempting.. so many people I would love to honor in that way, but doing so kind of seems to take away from how special it would be. I think we will stick with one middle name and cross my fingers we get to use Jewel. Or beg.. or bribe..
