Meaning:Behold, a son
With roots in Hebrew, Reubin is a boy's name inspired by its more popular spelling, Reuben. In the Hebrew bible, Reuben is the eldest son of Jacob and took center stage in the book of Genesis as a leader of one of Israel's twelve tribes. His legendary contribution earned his name the meaning, "behold, a son." Reubin has been in style since the mid-1800s, partly due to its biblical roots but also the many notable figures who share the name. You may think of American film producer Reuben Cannon or Stitch's cousin, nicknamed X-625 in the classic animated film Lilo & Stitch. Plus, baby will probably have a huge appetite thanks to their name's close relation to the legendary sandwich nicknamed a rube.
