Origin: [AS. rudig. See Rud, n.]
Ruddy is a reddish-rosy crimson colour, closer to red than to rose. A brownish shade of ruddy called ruddy brown is often referred to simply as ruddy when referring to animals. A pinkish tone of ruddy called ruddy pink is often referred to simply as ruddy when describing the colour of the cheeks of some Caucasians. The first recorded use of ruddy as a colour name in English was in 1000.
