Spelling variations of this family name include: Rubino, Rubini, Rubin, Rubbino, Rubinelli, Rubinetti and many more.

First found in Italy. Rubini have been noted in every area of Italy, though some spellings are more common in some areas than others. In general, those that end in "o" are from the south, whereas those that end in "i" are from the north. The Rubin and Rubinato versions are both originally from Venetia. There are several possible origins for the name. It could have originated from the first name Rubino, which was a shortened form of Cherubino, meaning "cherub," a kind of angel. It could also come from the Latin word "rubeus" meaning red, in which case it could refer to someone with red hair or a ruddy complexion, or it could refer to someone who cut rubies.
