  • i like it. i pronounced it right the first time but had to second guess it as "row". either way, i liked it. i'd like it as a middle name, too. i'm sure you'll get those "what are you doing, you're going to scar your child for life" but keep in mind that it's YOUR child and if you raise your child to be patient, she won't mind either. good luck! =)

  • I think she'll get a lot of mispronunciations of her name, but other than that I'm ambivalent. Its your baby, name it the way you want! :)

  • I think I like the spelling Rue better, I don't think you will have as many mispronunciations of it. Although it is french for street, so . . .

  • When picking a name for my kids, I tried to think of all the things I could think of to tease them made it easier to decide. The name is cute...but be prepared to always have to explain how to say it to new people ;)
