Meaning:Behold, my son; ruby, red
Rubin is a boy’s name of various origins. It probably derives from the Biblical Hebrew name Reuven, which means “behold, my son”—a proud exclamation to welcome your new baby boy. If you’re a fan of the finer things in life, you may also enjoy the theory that Rubin comes from the Latin rubeus, meaning “ruby” or “red.” One of the rarest of the cardinal gemstones, rubies are expensive, evocative, and impressive to behold. A dazzling namesake for baby Rubin, indeed.
