    1. It's gorgeous, an absolute favourite of mine.

    2. I love both spellings but the "Raphael" spelling holds my heart. I think it's because I had loved the Ninja Turtles growing up, Raph of course, was my favourite.

    Thank you all!

    I’m loving your similar names suggestions too. Lots of my favourites have come up as well as some I’ve never really considered before, but really like!

    I think I prefer the more streamlined look of the -f- spelling, but I wonder if it’s a bit too “foreign”, for want of a better word. The -ph- version feels more standard in English to me — I would assume Raphael’s parents just liked the name (or the painter), whereas I would probably expect Rafael’s family to have some Spanish/Portuguese heritage. What do you think?
