My last name is Ruby, I have looked and looked to find the orgin of the name and have had no luck. I have been led to believe that the name could be German or German/Jewish and more than likely change from the name Rubenstine or Rubinstine. I am looking for any backgound information on the name, meaning (though not all that important), most importantly where the name comes from. If able to find the information I would also like to know when it was changed or where in a time line it's use was changed?
This is not an issue that my Grandmother will talk about, though I'm not sure she knows the answer. Any help or information you can provide will be of a great help to me.
