Ruby: Mom, why did you name me Ruby?
Ruby's Mom: Well, Ruby, I thought it fit you...you just kinda look like a Ruby to me!
Ruby: Mom, couldn't you have been a little more creative???
Ruby's Mom: Your name IS Ruby Bleu...I think that is mighty creative!
Ruby: Seriously woman, that is all you have to say for yourself? Did you put any thought into the whole naming process? When hooman pups are being borned their pawrents spend months and months thinking of names and all you have is that I "kinda look like a Ruby". You had to have gotten the idea somewhere??? Was there no process at all???
Ruby's Mom: Well OK, I did put a lot of thought into it. You can ask Auntie Yvette, Auntie Joey and Auntie Kathy. I even posted an online poll. I had names like Lola and Lucy and a whole bunch of others that I just can't remember anymore. But I couldn't find anything that I really liked.
Ruby: So then what happened to change your mind.
Ruby's Mom: I decided to just wait until I got a picture of you...but still couldn't decide. Then I got hooked on Grey's Anatomy...at first (for like a whole 5 minutes) you were going to be an Izzie, short for Isabella. Thought that was nice and sounded very sophisticated just like your sister Sophia's name.
Ruby: Grey's Anatomy, really? This story is starting to get kinda boring...
Ruby's Mom: Well, like I said, I was hooked on Grey's Anatomy and got the soundtrack and there was this song called 'Ruby Blue' by Roisin Murphy. And well that was it...I guess I just liked it and thought it would be a cute name for you.
Ruby: Um, Mom, have you even listened to that song? It doesn't have very nice things to say about Ruby Blue. Sheesh...
Ruby's Mom: Well it was catchy...and sounded fun...heck, I don't listen to the words...I just like the beat.
Ruby: Boy your old...you sound like your being interviewed on American Bandstand or something.
Ruby's Mom: Oh Ruby...
Anyhowl...so now you know. That's how I got my name. And if you're interested, I pawsonally prefer the Kaiser Cheifs song, 'Ruby'!
So now I want to tag some of my girlie friends...Lacie, Asta, Clover, Maggie, Lorenza...how did you gets your name???
