    Would you be prn. it Rafe? I like either and have considered putting it on my list. My only reservation is in the States it is a euphemism for throwing up, but maybe that isn't well known slang!

    I really don't like it either way, I'm sorry. Ralph is still a pretty commonly known slang for throwing up (at least in my generation) so if you're pronouncing it "RALF", I immediately think 'puke', et c. "RAFE", I just have never really gotten, it sounds so close to 'rape' I just can't get behind it. Especially confusing when it's spelled Ralph and pronounced Rafe. I think that'd just be setting him up for lots of unnecessary confusion.
    contemplating combos:
    August David Dodge · August Henry Dodge · Barnaby Viggo Paul · Barnaby Atlas Paul
    Leona Vesper Lynn · Vivian Lillie Revere · Florence Patricia Mae · Zelda Katherine Rose

    I'm not such a Ralph fan either, with either pronunciation.
