Reuben is a biblical name of Hebrew origin that refers to the age-old saying "behold, a son". It is derived from the eldest son of Jacob and Leah, who was the forefather of one of the twelve tribes of Israel in the Book of Genesis. In recent years, the name Reuben has gained popularity in mainstream media, but its roots can be traced back to the biblical context. The name Reuben is also associated with a famous North American grilled sandwich called the Reuben sandwich. It is composed of corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian or Thousand Island dressing, served hot between slices of rye bread. The origins of the Reuben sandwich are debated, but it is believed to have been created in 1914 by a chef at a New York delicatessen for a leading lady of actor Charlie Chaplin. The name "Reuben" for the sandwich is likely derived from the name of the delicatessen where it was invented, Reuben's Delicatessen.
