I adore the name Raleigh. Although many people do mispronounce it! It is pronounced "rah-lee" and not "ray-lee". It is said just like the city Raleigh (the capital of North Carolina).

I was named Raleigh 79 Years ago as the fourth son of five boys
I pronounce my name as RAH-LEE, but I will say most people get it wrong. Often in London Riley, which I do not like at all
I am very proud of my first name and have always stood out in the crowd.
