    I am looking into seeing where the family surname RUBA derives from. Could have been spelt Rubee originally. I’ve been told it was a Bohemian name. I can never find much information on the name.

    Hi Katie,

    As far as I can see online, there's only one person with that last name living in the Czech Republic and I'm not finding information on the name's origin. I wonder if the last name may have been changed from its original version HRUBÝ (pronounced hroobee) or its feminine form HRUBÁ (pronounced hroobah). The word hrubý means rough, harsh.
