Ruth (or Rus, depending on pronunciation and transliteration) is very common for converts, which makes sense. For non-converts (i.e., for naming a girl born to a Jewish mother) it looks like many times the English first name is Ruth but the Hebrew first name is Rachel or something else. Is there any rule (Halacha or Minhag or just a "tradition" among some groups) regarding using Ruth as a first name for someone born Jewish?
