Personal experiences with the name Ruffin: | Edit

My husband's great grandfather was Ruffin Abraham and his son, my husband's grandfather, was David Ruffin. They are from Texas and Arkansas, other than that I don't know anything about the origin of the name. We just named our first-born son Ruffin James and I think it's a very strong, masculine name. Love it!
