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

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

    Raphael is great, as if Rafael.

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