    As a full name, no Ruby does not work for a boy. But as a nickname for Rubin it is a complete diffferent thing. I think it would be a sweet nickname for when he is little.

    My thoughts as well.

    I love the nn Ruby for Reuben
    It's just a nn. I know a Cameron called Camy and an Ivan called Ivy and they've survived.
