The only difference between the addresses is a single version-byte that ends up defining the first character of the address. Bitcoin-ruby has the definition for several networks, including namecoin, litecoin and dogecoin.

To use a different network, just set it before doing anything else:

Bitcoin.network = :namecoin

Now you can generate a namecoin address like usual:

Bitcoin.generate_address

or:

Bitcoin::Key.generate
