    Sorry, I'm with the no crowd. I would always assume Ruby is a girl; it would never occur to me that this is a unisex name.

    It seems like I've seen a western with a male Ruby before. For some reason it was a cowboy or maybe southern feel to it. It kind of makes me think of Josie Wales.

    I don't really mind "feminine" nicknames on boys. My Dad has been called Rosey for as long as I can remember. We also have a family friend named Roosevelt that everyone calls Rosie. Their nicknames have never made them seem any less masculine to me.
    Trying, trying, trying

    Current favorites:
    Boy: Asa Guillaume, Barnaby August
    Girl: Apolline Iris- Polly, Clothilde Juno- Chloe

    I don't mind it, especially since it's just a nickname.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    I think it's fine for a man or a woman. Garnet is a unisex name, why not Ruby? It's like Carol or Cary...strange to people who don't know one who is male, but once you start to associate it with a certain person, all that goes away.
    Latest list:

    Girl: Lulu, Eden
    Boy: Leo, Wallace, Grady

    Mommy to one sweet little boy who I loved naming Lennox Andrew Michael (Lex for short)
