I really don't like this spelling. It looks like it should be Ray-cheel.

This is a botched spelling of Rachael and shouldn't be listed as a real name. Either that, or it's Irish, and should be pronounced Ra-hal.

Good grief, this is the worst. People, stop murdering the lovely name Rachel - if you like it, use the R-A-C-H-E-L spelling, not R-A-C-H-E-A-L. It is very wrong.

I had a friend called Rachael growing up, and this is how she misspelled her name as a five year old. It also reminds me of how I used to spell Michael as Micheal when I was the same age. This name is a spelling mistake. Stick with Rachel (my favorite version) or Rachael or Rachelle if you MUST spell things "uniquely".

This is my name, and its unusual spelling has grown on me over the years. It's a bit harsh to say it's a terrible name, just because it's not spelt the same way you're used to. Many names we use these days are misspellings of old ones. It can also be a good conversation starter.

This is also my name and I really appreciate this spelling being included as a variant. I always joke about the spelling, attributing it to the morphine given to women during childbirth in 1970, particularly because my mom is very religious. Further, while I have a great aunt Rachel, apparently I was actually named after a soap opera character. My mom said she gave me this spelling to make my name unique. Ironically, even though I was taught to spell my name this way and did throughout my life, it was brought to my attention my senior year of high school that my name was actually spelled Rachel on my birth certificate but most other 'official' documents showed Racheal. The Assistant Principal told me that I needed to pick a spelling and get this sorted out. I tried out the more common spelling for a couple of months thinking it might be less hassle but it just didn't fit. So we had my birth certificate amended to reflect the accurate spelling. Now, I appreciate my mom's efforts and quite like the spelling. And while the pronunciation is different, I am pleased to learn that at least the ending is like the Irish spelling since I do have some Irish ancestry. Thanks so much!
