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.
