This name would be badass on a kid.
Ra in Arabic means "Take care of, Shepherd, Sponsor".
I would never consider giving this name to a child. It is a name of the Egyptian sun god, and the name isn't that nice at all.
Jeez, I'd feel sorry for the kid whose imbecile parents decided to call them this. Ignorant fools.
Ra, aka Atan or Amonrey, god of the sun disk, was one of the most well known of the Egyptian pantheon. During the reign of the Pharaoh Akhenaten (he who serves the Sundisk), he was made into the only god, first known instance of monotheism.
Come on now, why would any sane person name their son after a sun god that has this strange-sounding one-syllable name that sounds like someone growling on a bad day or hurting themselves?
slight night shiver
This name made up one of the titles for a Pharaoh (the nomen): 'Sa-Ra' which literally meant 'son of Ra'.
I love this name. Most people are not a fan of the name but I love this name. Some say that this name is for a dog but I feel that the name is not.
I've just remembered this but there's a baddie in Stargate SG1 (well, was) called Ra.
It's funny that Ra is symbolic of sun because in Te Reo Maori (indiginous language of New Zealand) Ra is also sun. There is a well known legend of how Maui captured the sun to make the days go slower as it liked to go very fast.
Ra is the name of a rock band (why do they always pilfer Egyptian names?)
Ra was the name for the Egyptian sun god.
