Ruth

Ruth is a case-study in loyalty. The Old Testament Book of Ruth centers on a young, loyal Moabite woman who refused to desert her mother-in-law even after her husband’s death (which is truly a godly act if we ever saw on.). She became an ancestor of King David. The name soared to popularity in the early 1900s, but has fallen by the wayside since then.
