    Challenge: Boy name to honor a grandmother Rose/Rachel

    It is quite possible that my son will be the last great grandchild of my late paternal grandmother Rose. Her Hebrew name was Rachel. I would like my son's middle name to be in honor of her, either beginning with an "R" or otherwise connected to Rose or Rachel (meaning: ewe). We want the name to be Jewish (or at least Jewish-friendly, if that makes sense) or, even better, Hebrew.

    So far, we have Lior (pronounced lee-OR) (which really doesn't have any connection other than the "r" at the end but which we both like) and Ro'i (which both starts with an "R" and which means shepherd, but which I don't love).

    Any other thoughts??

    Thanks!

    What about Raphael honouring Rachel? That's a Hebrew name, isn't it?

    I second the suggestion of Raphael. Ronen is another favorite of mine.

    I like Raphael too. Some more suggestions: Ram, Rueben/Ruven, or Jubal (means "ram's horn").
