I adore the nickname Ru (Roo) for a boy so any name that could possibly lead to Ru is a plus to me.

As for Ruger, the first thing that I think of is the firearm company. Naming your son Ruger would be very similar to naming him Remington or Winchester. However, that may not be an issue for you, it didn't stop the hundreds of people who used the name Remington for both their sons and daughters in 2011 and the 94 people who used the name Ruger (no record of any Winchesters in 2011). Since Ruger is the name of a gun, it lends a very masculine and tough feeling to the name; yet it still has a valid name sound because of its similarity to Rudger, Rupert, and even Roger.

Overall I think it is a nice, underused name.

I'm not too keen on it in my honest opinion. How would you pronounce the U and the G? I think my opinion would differ depending on the pronunciation.

I believe the name Dru is perfect for the nickname Ru. Dru is pronounced like "Drew" but Being spelt as Dru makes it very unique.

I like the name.... But I am from Texas and boys often have names that come from hunting or guns :)
