    I don't think of the sandwich, I think of the guy from American Idol, and I really don't remember what he even looked like. So no, it doesn't make me think of the sandwich at all.

    I like Reuben! I think Reu/Rheu and Ben are adorable nns, too. As far as the sandwich--meh. It's not the worst association. I actually sort of like it, but then again, it's my mom's favorite kind of sandwich, so there's a bit of a family tie for me. Even with that, it's not my first thought--I think of Jacob's oldest son in the Bible before I think of the sandwich.

    I like Reuben, and I only think of the sandwich once someone else has mentioned it. Otherwise it would never cross my mind. If you went with the name Patty Melt or something, I would think of the sandwich, but Reuben is definitely a name to me. It's a nice name.

    Thanks for all your guys' input! Also, a second name I forgot to mention in my original post that I've adored for years is Balthasar. I've only met one person that doesn't think I'm a hundred percent insane for being head over heels for this name. In my opinion, it's curious, unique, bouncy, and denotes chivalry and creativity. I think it's my favorite name probably of all time, boys and girls, with Reuben being a close second.

    I do think of the sandwich, but my first association is black hats in Brooklyn-- i.e. it's a very religious Jewish name to me.

    I love Balthasar, and like it a lot more than Reuben!
