Ruben

ORIGIN: Spanish
POPULARITY: 786
This spelling variation of Reuben has more devotees among Latino parents than the original. It’s more understandable without the “eu”—sometimes extra letters mean extra trouble. In the Bible, Reuben is the eldest son of Jacob and Leah who is best known for sleeping with one of his father’s girlfriends and for saving his brother Joseph from being put to death by their other brothers. Famous Rubens include “American Idol” winner Ruben Studdard and the deli sandwich (spelled the original way). All in all, it's a masculine name with a lot of flavor.
