I used to be a full-time nanny to a baby named Rachael and I honestly did think it seemed quite grown-up on her when I first started that job.
However, my opinion changed rather quickly. As she and I became closer, I naturally began racking up nicknames for her--Rachie, Rae-Rae, Rae-Rae Bebe (prn. 'Beh-bay''), Rach, even 'Rae of Sunshine' and for some reason, 'Geegers'! Her middle name = Samantha.
I adore the name Rachel, but have always preferred it spelled Rachael. The name in general is so beautifully classic to me, as well as Biblical. I think it's a wonderful choice for a baby girl.
As far as middle names go, here are some suggestions:
I hope some of these help; you didn't specify any personal preference with regard to the style/first initial/sound/length, etc. etc. of the middle name, so I just came up with some middles I think would potentially go nicely with Rachel.
L.D.In current favor of...:
Boys: Ian, John, Lincoln
Girls: Marin, Lena, Mareina

I love Rachel! It's on my short list. It's never seemed too grown-up for me, but I don't really know any grown Rachels. The Rachels I know/knew are either in high school now or just starting college. I know of a few people who have chosen Rachel for their daughters, too, so I can imagine it on a little baby! My combo is Rachel Clara Evangeline. I think Rachel Evangeline/Rachel Clara Evangeline is utterly perfect, haha, but I had also tossed around Rachel Giovanna, Rachel Jocelyn, Rachel Aurora, Rachel Lisette, Rachel Anais, etc.
I also love the suggestions of Rachel Olivia and Rachel Audrey!
Rachel Sophie/Rachel Sophia (one of the people I know who have chosen Rachel for their daughters actually used Rachel Sophia! I think it's lovely)

Rachel would be on our list if it weren't my SIL's name. Her middle name is Marie, a true testament of her age. What about:
Rachel EleanorMy girls: Grace Patricia "Gracie Pat" & Eloise Martha "Elsie Mae"
If we had a baby today: Amelia Edith OR Desmond Walter
Guys: Julian, Amos, Tobias, August, Silas, Peter
Dolls: Iris, Marian, Hazel, Flora, Margo, Agnes
