The only Rafe I've ever known used it at a short form of Rafael (pronounced RAYF-ay-el).

In Hebrew orthography the Rafe or Raphe, (Hebrew: øôä, meaning "soft"), is a diacritic ¯ : a short horizontal overbar placed above the consonant which indicates a softer form of a consonant.

This was the name of a con man who helped Xena in the TV programme Xena The Warrior Princess, pronounced "RAY-f". I like it pronounced that way; I think it sounds cheeky and distinguished. :D

Very sleek and handsome. I really hate it when Rafe gets relegated to "nickname only" status for the unrelated Raphael which is far too much name for me. Rafe is a full name and an old one.

I think Rafe is wonderful, unique name. I plan to name my first son this.

Ugly name. Reminds me of the word "rape".

I don't think that Rafe is anything like Ralph. In fact, it's a much better and more handsome name than Ralph. It should be considered its own name. It's very modern and masculine.

Rafe is my favorite boy name! It's handsome, short and sweet and youthful yet mature for an adult. If I have a son, I want to name him this, specifically after my grandfather, who's name was Ralph. I like the name Rafe on it's own though.

It makes me think of the word "Rape" too much. Ugh, horrible name.
