The Rugini were a tribe in Pomerania. They were only mentioned once, in a list of yet to mission tribes drawn by monk Bede (also Beda venerabilis) in his Historia ecclesiastica of the early 8th century:[1][2][clarification needed]

Whether the Rugini were remnants of the Rugii is speculative.[1] The term Rugini was also interpreted as the first mention of the Slavic Rani (also Rujani), who in the Middle Ages dwelled on the isle of Rügen.[2][3]
