Means 'famous ruler' or 'red king'.
Roderick and a few others.
EVERYBODY spelled/pronounced my friend's name 'Rory' until they were corrected.
It's my new favourite word. Well, it was my new favourite word 10 minutes ago. Now it's still my favourite word.
the lead singer of Swimsuit-Issue.
he was 16 and doing his best to be a scene photographer. That was his name.
No other real point to my tale other than I was intrigued by the spelling for awhile there, too.
'rua' (pron. roo-ah) in irish means redhair.
ri (pron. ree) means King.
i knew a Ruairidh or 2 when i was younger, with slightly different spellings. Not uncommon at all. More like ROOREE when pronounced.
I also like the way that Irish Gaelic is pronounced Gay-lick but Scottish is pronounced Gal-lick. Irish R Gay
That way was like a puppy asking for food.
Now, it's RUAIRIDH.
I was supposed to be called Calum but my parents changed their mind at the last minute.
Ten points if you can pronounce that correctly.
But I think officially it's pronounced 'Varrie'. Well done.
though, i'd have been pissed off if i'd not got it right :)
Bring it on.
RUARIDH mean that?
R-R-R-RUAIDIDH on time
Death to Rooareees!
As in 'is there a offy around here? I'm thirsting for an beer or two!'

That's the best we could do in dictionary corner.
I've got a 7 now, but I've had 2 1/2 minutes.
so it's obviously quite common too
was Irish. He'd have died there and then trying to carve '4 ruairidh' into his arm. Lamacq would NOT have been pleased.
Mainly because when I went to the Giant's Causeway when I was about ten, I went with a little three year old boy called Ruairidh who said "IF I SEE ANY BASTARD GIANTS, I'LL KICK 'EM IN THE FACE."
In a really great Belfast accent.
Good times, good times.
It's a cool name.
I really like names like Naoise and Saoirse and Eilidh and STUFF.
I said up there!
Then I pretended I couldn't pronounce it for comedy purposes.
What a cool name! And Tadhg!
Naoise and Tadhg = two best boys names ever.
