A wee bit too frilly for me. Makes me think of an old lady's poodle with ribbons on every curl.

I think it's a beautiful name. It was my grandma's name until she legally changed it to Rae because she hated it. Except she spelled it "Raphaella." She's Italian so I don't know why it wasn't spelled the way it says on here.
