Which spelling?


We've decided on a name but my lovely husband () decided to add a spanner to the works and tell me the way I want to spell it, it's also a sandwich in the US!!!

So do you prefer
Reuben or Ruben?

Personally I prefer Reuben but interested what others think?

I'm from the US so when I see 'Reuben', a very delicious sandwich does come to mind lol. So I would prefer 'Ruben'

I like Reuben. Even though it's the name of the sandwich, it appears to be to be the more correct spelling. Ruben just feel like it's missing a letter.

Thanks ladies. I agree too it looks misspelt without the e in the beginning. I never knew there was an American sandwich called Reuben until my hubby informed me ......... It's also the name of a famous alternative rock band in UK! Vlol x
