    Also Hugh.
    Pearl Harbor the movie was really, really bad. Raferty/Rafe seems in keeping with cheesey soapopera/melodrama/romancenovel feel of that movie, and not much of a real name from the era.
    Very much agreed on the Pearl Harbor movie being far too cheesy - and I only saw it once, so don't know if I have heard Rafferty in conjunction with the era from somewhere else or if the movie was enough to cement it in my mind as a WWII era name.
