Gender: M Meaning of Rafferty: "floodtide, abundance, prosperity" Origin of Rafferty: Irish

Jaunty and raffish, Rafferty is one of the most engaging of the Irish surnames, used by Jude Law and Sadie Frost for their son. Fortunately, it doesn't still go by its original form: O'Raighbheartaigh.

Raff and Rafe are two equally great nicknames.
