- Personal experiences with the name Rue: | Edit
I think it's a beautiful name, being a French major and lover of French culture, I have always thought it would so pretty to give to a daughter one day. Although now with the success and popularity of the book series, The Hunger Games, I couldn't see myself using it. Even though I enjoyed the books, I wouldn't want to endure everyone asking if that was why I named her Rue.

A traditional English name, literally meaning "regret." Rue is also the name of an herb.
Also, it is the French word for street or road, much nicer sounding than regret. Especially if one calls to mind the lovely streets of Paris.
Could also be short for Ruth.
