So we have Sophie Jane already and I thought of Ruby June last night now that we know we're having another girl, what do you think?

I love Ruby but I think June sounds old and dated and more of my mother's generation, sorry.
Are you wanting to use June as a matching name with your first daughter?

Ruby June is beautiful - especially if you have a family reason for using June.

Honestly, how often are kids middle names used when they're not in trouble?

Our Ruby was Ruby Leisha ...

Not a fan of either name, sorry - and particularly not in combination.

If anything, I would keep the MN June and find something a lot less common as a FN.

Yeh that's what I was thinking, make it similar.

What about Ruby Eloise?

I don't mind June but not with Ruby.

Love Ruby Eloise.

It's sorta OK but I'd prefer Ruby Jean (to contrast the vowel sound).

I have always loved Ruby Kate. But that goes away from your "J" middle name theme.

#11 Super Cat

Posted 29 December 2012 - 09:27 PM

I like Ruby June.

I think it's lovely, but too matchy with your other daughter's middle name.

I agree with Magnus - Ruby June sounds fine to me but I wouldn't have two DDs with mn's  Jane and June.I know it's only matchy mn's not first names but too cutesy for me
And Ruby goes well with most middle names, I'd pick a different mn.

I agree with Magnus - Ruby June sounds fine to me but I wouldn't have two DDs with mn's  Jane and June.I know it's only matchy mn's not first names but still too cutesy for me
And Ruby goes well with most middle names, I'd pick a different mn.

Thanks for your replies.

June is not a family name, I just liked that it was a bit matchy but still cute, or so I thought Tounge1.gif

Don't like Jean and can't do Jade as already one in the family.

Will keep thinking...

I quite like June but some other four letter J names that come to mind are

Jodi (maybe not with Ruby though)

I'm not a huge fan of the name Ruby but that's only because I know a horrible one and she is enough to put me off that name for life! I would pick a different first name and keep the cute J theme going.

Good luck!

#19 Pssst...

Posted 30 December 2012 - 07:35 AM

I know a Ruby Joy and I think that works well

Lol.. at Ruby Tuesday!  It does sound super cute but it's actually the name of a chain of restaurants in the USA.  Maybe the parents were huge fans lol biggrin.gif

Edited to say - It's also the name of a Rolling Stones song, so maybe they were RS fans, I know I am wink.gif

By the way I love the name Ruby, I considered it if my last baby was going to be a girl (ended up having another boy) - I chose Ruby Ramona biggrin.gif  Too matchy for some but I loves it biggrin.gif

Sounds gorgeous! I have the CCR song "Susie-Q" going in my head, except "Oh Ruby June, oh Ruby June..." Big thumbs up from me OP.

Hi there,

I think Ruby June sounds pretty.  A friend has a Ruby Jean which I think is lovely too.

Good luck!

My friend has twins Ruby and June!

#24 la di dah

Posted 30 December 2012 - 08:13 PM

Ruby June has a lot of U in it... the assonance gets to me a little.

If I wanted to keep the J I might consider:
Ruby Joelle
Ruby Johanna
Ruby Jordana
Ruby Jacinta

If I wanted the one-syllable
Ruby Claire
Ruby Mae - Sophie Jane and Ruby Mae is ultra cute to me.

Love Ruby but not sure about using June with it IMO just doesn't quite sound right.
