Help with baby girl name based on a nickname?

My DH has this obsession with the name Rue, which I am not wanting to use, since it means regret and is too short. I told him that if he could come up with a name that would work with it as the nickname for it then I'd consider it. But....he is stuck and getting frustrated. I told him I'd ask you guys then we could see if a name could be found to add to our short list.

So any ideas on a name that this could be a nickname for?

And yes I know he heard the name cuz he read Hunger Games, and I'm ignoring that fact.

Don't forget that Rue means street in French.

I think Rue is cute and I couldn't think of much more then what the other ladies suggested.
