About Ruby-Leigh

Go back to names list

Double barrelled first names are a more modern creation. They are probably inspired by the double barrelled surnames frequently found in English speaking countries. The meaning of the name can be taken to be a mixture of its two parts theoretically. Ruby is the name of a precious stone that has been adopted as a first name for girls. The rarity of the rock gives the name the meaning of ‘Precious’. Leigh comes from the Old English language and was used to refer to an area cleared for a field. It became a name originally as a surname, found in names such as Ashley, which then became forenames.
