Comments for RAE:

I like the name Rae as a nickname for Raegan. :)

I LOVE this name. I can't explain why but I just think it's a beautiful name, not only for a pet name for someone named Rachel or Raquel (as myself) but also as a first name. I love the sound of it! Reminds me of the sun, the summer and someone really brave and sweet.

Unique and pretty.

I think it is a pretty name as well as a good nickname for someone named Rachel or Raegan. I have a friend who we call Rae-Rae to get on her nerves.

My middle name is Rae and so far I have never met another girl named Rae. I like it for a short form of Raelyn or just for a first name. A unique spelling I've found is Rai or Raii.

I know someone called Rae, who is a girl, and this is not a nickname! Rae for a girl's full name is absolutely hideous, and entirely masculine. No offence to all those Rae's out there.

I have also seen the name Raelee.

Rae is the female carachter's name in the movie "Dead Calm", starring Nicole Kidman.

Rae is a good name but gets old quickly.

I think Rae is a good middle name for a girl.

Rae can also be short for Raven. That is Raven-Symone's nickname in the show "That's So Raven".

I know a girl named "Anarae." Pronounced ANN-A-RAY.

The name of the heroine in "Black Snake Moan".

Clich├ęd, sort of trashy, masculine because it sounds like 'Ray', and the 'ae' part is ugly since it is at the end.
-- gretaelisif  11/19/2007
Too plain and minimalist.

In my opinion Rae is much, much prettier than the ugly name it's often associated with: Rachel.
-- Junidoe-Josephine  8/24/2008
This name sounds like a generic middle name for a female redneck.
-- bananarama  10/7/2008
Rae is a lovely name, nice and short. I know two girls called Rae as their full name.

A sweet modern name, which happens to be one of the only modern names that is pronounceable and not sucky. It expresses creativity without scaring your children.

Rae is the name of a character from the short novel "There's No Such Place as Far Away" written by Richard Bach.
-- winterglow  1/4/2009
ATTENTION! This is now my official nickname! My name's Rachel, so I think this will be a cute nickname, instead of Rachelle and Rach, and it's a lot less common. Yay!
-- LilSingstarEeyore  1/14/2009
One of the most horrible first names I have ever seen. The pronunciation of this name is WAY too masculine for a female. As a middle name though it isn't so bad, with the right first name (something very feminine) this could be cute.

The coolest name I ever heard.
-- sailormars  6/16/2009
I prefer this name spelt the Japanese way, Rei, like Hino Rei a.k.a Sailor Mars, who I love.
-- Ailis  3/1/2010
Quite a lovely first name, if I do say so myself.
-- Anonymous User  6/9/2010
This traditionally a surname, particularly in Scotland and the Orkney Islands.
For example 19th century Scottish explorer John Rae.

Like many posters here, I write fiction. I have a character named Rachel and absolutely hated the thought of her being called "Rach." Say what you will about Rachel's beauty or lack thereof (I like it myself, obviously) but Rach is positively dreadful. I was so happy to discover the much cuter nickname Rae!

My name is Kirsten Rae. I hate Rae. I have enough difficulty getting inattentive people to get my first name correct, but when I give my name for a pizza order they inevitably assume it is 'Ray' and I am just using my husband/SO's name. It is ENTIRELY too masculine to be cute as a given name. As a close family/ very personal nickname it can be cute but as a given name it is asking your daughter to become a hooker and give birth to her first or 14 children when she's 15.

A family friend had a baby last year that they named Summer Rae, such an adorable name!

Am I the only one who thinks this is a filler nickname given by redneck parents? It's not even pretty, although ray isn't terrible for a boy. "Rae", however, just sounds completely southern and unintelligent, as a middle name or a first name. And to the person who said it was modern, it's actually not even on the top 1000 anymore, but had been since the 1800's, so I guess the only credit I can give it is it's not trendy or modern.

My name is Raeleen. My nick names are Rae or Rae Rae. I always get complements on my name on how unique and beautiful it is. I love my name and nicknames.
-- Raeleen  5/11/2013
The name Rae was given to 80 baby girls born in the US in 2012.
-- Oohvintage  7/18/2013
My friend is going to name her child Rae and her name is Mary so it will be Mary had a (skip little) lamb.
