When my husband and I were looking for a middle name for our soon to be here baby girl, Ruth was the only name we liked because; one, it's his mothers middle name, and second, it was his grandma's first name. When we told his mother we were naming our baby girls middle name after her, she was so excited and started to cry. We are glad we are following in family names but also that we could make my mother-in-law so happy. Ruth is a very beautiful name.
