Soooo.......

baby due in April is a girl, both DP and I dont mind Ruby as a name so discussion pretty much stopped there as there seemed no point continueing the search.  Problem is we just cant come up with a middle name,

some options (but not sold on any of them) could be to use one of the following family names

My mum is Helen Jean
DP's mum is Kaye
Grandmother Mavis Emily (already used Emily with our Angel daughter)

Can anyone give us some other ideas or a spin on one of the family names that we havent thought of that sounds good with Ruby?

btw surname will be Stewart

I think Ruby Jean is lovely from your list of options.

I also like Ruby May.

Maybe because Ruby is quite short you could even think of using a long middle name like Ruby Evangeline or similar?

Ruby Jean sounds good together. I like it a lot. Also like Ruby Jay. Ruby May as suggested by someone previous sounds great also and May can be a combo of Mavis and Kaye.
