"The spelling of "Ruthi" is very common in Israel. It is also spelled "Ruti." One of Israel's top singers of the 1970s was Ruthi Navon-just one example." Apr. 1, 2012:

"Ruthie, meet Ruthie!! It's been my nickname for almost 55 years and I wouldn't trade it for any other name!!" Jul. 30, 2009:
"I love my name. Ruth of course, nicknamed to Ruthie. My name is unique. There is never another Ruthie around. I prefer to be called Ruthie, but there are some people who automatically call me Ruth even if I introduce myself as Ruthie. It's usually older people. When I was younger, I wished I was a Lisa, but there are so many of them, that's it's such a dull, ugly name. Ruthie is way better!" Dec. 24, 2008:
"People call me Ruthie after they have
known me for a while. It is meant to
be affectionate, maybe even "cute."" Jul. 8, 2005:

"My friends and family call me Ruthie, and I agree that it is a sign of affection. This is probably why I prefer 'Ruthie' it just seems more cute, and makes me feel that I should be an easy-going, friendly, and kind person. In saying that, Ruth means a 'friendly' person, so anyone with a variant of the name (i.e. Ruthie, Ruthi, Ruthina, Ruthie Babe) is in essence a 'friendly' person as a name suggests." May. 10, 2008:
"My name is Ruth, but some people call me Ruthie which i quite like." Dec. 14, 2006:
"Unfortunately I was given many "Baby Ruth" candy bars in high school... I'm sure it was a teasing thing, but what girl doesn't like chocolate?" May. 8, 2006:
