I am Rahel in my German birth certificate from 1936, when all German Jews got named Sarah (or Jacob) if they didn't already have a Jewish name. My parents were German, not Hungarian. (Now I spell it Rachel like most people do). Rahel Levin of Berlin around 1800 is mentioned in "The Pity of it All" by Amos Eilon.

My name is Rahel, but without the accent, and it is Welsh for Rachel. The way I pronounce it is "rile".

Rahel is the name of one of the twins in the novel "The God of Small Things" - I don't think her name is Hungarian though as she is from India.

My sister's middle name is pronounced like this name except she spells it R-A-E-L.

Rahel is the name of the daughter of Janna in the book Mission Child by Maureen McHugh. She only lives a week.

Ráhel is so pretty! Even though I like Rachel more. It's nothing like any of those stupid Rachel train-wrecks that we like to call names.
