This name sounds best pronounced Ra-SHEL.

The name will almost always be mis-pronounced as Rachel (Ray-chul) although I have encountered Rochelle, and even Michelle. (Michelle most often with the hard of hearing)

I know one Rachelle who pronounces it ray-CHELL. I quite like this pronunciation, and I think it makes it a refreshing change to the equally lovely but more common Rachel, RAY-chul.

Much more prettier than plain Rachel.

I much prefer Rachelle to Rachel. It's much softer and prettier in my opinion.

Used in the novel "Speak" as Melinda's ex best friend. Rachelle's real name is Rachel, but she changes it for her European heritage.

It sounds like the parents were trying to find a classy, sophisticated name, but ended up with a rather tacky one. In English, this name sounds more like the name of some lower middle class ditz.

Eww! My name's Rachel, and this sounds horrible! If you want something different than Rachel, don't give your daughter this train wreck of a name! Grrr!

My name is Rachelle pronounced Ray-Shell. I love my name and get a lot of compliments on my name. Many people mispronounce my name and call me Rachel or Rochelle. I like that my name is not so common so I rarely had to worry about someone having the same name in my class or at work etc. It is a lovely name and if you don't agree that is fine, we are all allowed to have our own opinions!

I got yelled at today for saying "Rah-shell" instead of "Ray-chel." I'm sorry, but if Rachelle is pronounced Ray-chel than Michelle should be pronounced Mee-chel. If your parents wanted your name to be Ray-chel, they should have named you Rachael, Rachel, or even Raychel.
