I do actually prefer [name]Rafael[/name] but of the two spellings you have listed I have to go with [name]Raphael[/name], it looks strong and masculine.

While there is nothing wrong with [name]Raphaello[/name] I think people could end up confusing Raphaella just because it has the ‘ello’ sound which some may assume girly.

[name]Raphael[/name] is great, as if [name]Rafael[/name].

I love [name]Raphael[/name], with the nickname [name]Ralph[/name] {RAYF}. So cute :slight_smile:

I’m in the minority. I picked [name]Raffaello[/name], but I love all three: [name]Raphael[/name], [name]Rafael[/name], and [name]Raffaello[/name]. As for [name]Raffaello[/name], I think it’s one of the few strong and beautiful Italian names not taking up by family members.

I love [name]Raphael[/name]! Especially spelt [name]Rafael[/name] -because of [name]Rafael[/name] Nadal ;)-

[name]Raffaello[/name], at least in the US, looks sort of pretentious - unless you’re Italian and it’s a family name as is.
