Rubin is a boy’s name of various origins. It is believed to have derived from the biblical Hebrew name Reuven, which means “behold, my son”—a proud exclamation to welcome your new bundle of joy. 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. Also, the last name Rubin has strong German roots and can be traced all the way back to the 12th century. It originated in Bavaria and was typically borne by families who offered a significant contribution to medieval society, giving the moniker another sense of regality. A dazzling namesake for baby Rubin, indeed.
