A variant of Ruth, Ruthie is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin, meaning “friend.” Biblically, Ruth appeared as a widowed woman who remained with her husband’s mother after he passed. Ruth was often considered a symbol of abiding loyalty and devotion, which would bode well for your little one. Softening Ruth’s harsher edges with the adorable -Ie ending adds to Ruthie’s playfulness, making for a cute feminine name for your sprightly little one. With a definition like this, parents can count on baby Ruthie to stay by their side through thick and thin.
