Ruth may not have the same cool factor as other old-fashioned baby names, like Emma and Isabella, but it has something equally great: deep biblical ties that make it trend-proof. The Book of Ruth in the Hebrew Bible is one of only two books named after a woman (the other is Esther). If you’re looking for a modern-day role model named Ruth, look no further than Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the few women in history to hold that position.
