    I love the vintage charm and Biblical history of Ruth. Renee is "dated" and is so mainstream it's lost a lot of its French charm for me. I much prefer the Italian Renata.

    My favourite "R" girl names are:

    Renata nn Ren
    Rachel/Raquel
    Radha
    Raphaela/Raffaella
    Ramira
    Ramona
    Rhona
    Rhonwen
    Reem
    Rochelle
    Riva
    Romilly
    Rosalind
    Rosamund
    Roisin
    Ruby
    Roxana
    Rosemary
    Rosalie
    Rosabel
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I know someone called Ruth, I used to be quite good friends with her. I suppose I've got a bit of a soft spot for the name. Renee is okay, but I'm not a huge fan. My favourite R names are (no pun intended):
    Rowenna
    Reverie (bit of a GP)
    Rain
    Rhea (Ray-a)
    Rue
    Rosalind
    Rosemarie
    Raven
    Roxanne

    I really like Ruth. If I were planing to use Renee, I would use it as a mn because it does come across as dated.

    I actually like Renee a lot. I don't think it was ever widely used in the UK (I don't know any) so it probably sounds less dated to me.
    Another one I like which feels similar is Rachel.

    Ruth should technically be my style; I even know several little girls called Ruth so the 'old lady' thing doesn't really bother me (although I love the line in Friends ''what about Ruth?'' ''Oh, I'm sorry, are we having an 89-year-old?''). I just find it really ugly.

    I love;
    Raphaela
    Ramona
    Romy
    Rocio
    Rosemary, Rosa, Rosaline
    Ruby
    Rebecca
