Rakel Says:


This is my name! Despite people getting it confused with Raquel and mispronouncing it wrong in just about a million different ways (It's pronounced "Rock-ul"), I really have grown to love it and I feel like it suits me perfectly. I'm a very creative individual - artist, singer, web & graphic designer and front-end developer. I think this name is unique, but not too "out there" ... it's simple and doesn't usually take long for people to learn. You'll never have an issue with being the 5th person with your name in the class, either.
