Rory, Roddy and Roderick would be some of the given equivalents. Rudy isn’t a common name in Scotland but it isn’t far off! Ruairidh is a fairly common first name here in English also although it is sometimes spelled differently.
It was always the Gaelic form of Roger where I grew up.
Is there an english equivalent of Ruairidh? It sounds a lot like Rudy but is it the same?
I think the English equivalent is Rory
According to 'Everyday Gaelic' by Morag MacNeill, Ruairidh is Roderick or Derick.
Why can't greas mean just 'hurry', without the 'up'?
I would report it (using the little flag button) next time if it comes up again, it might have been an oversight.
