    As a nn for a longer name, yes. Stand alone? No.

    Yeah, this is what I was going to say.

    Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

    No. Does anyone remember middle or high school? I recall it being a brutal time for fragile, developing egos. Being a boy with a girls nn would be horrible. Ruby isn't unisex anymore, and it's a popular girls name. Why not Roo/ Rue? That's an acceptable, cute nn for a boy.

    I agree that it works as a nickname, but I would struggle with it as a given name for a boy.

    I think people have to remember that nicknames don't have to be used all the time. If it's going to cause teasing in school, he can easily just go by his actual name - Rubin.
