The name of a famous actor in Italy, Raoul Bova. He played parts in Under the Tuscan Sun, and Alien vs. Predator, along with MANY Italian movies.

I think that Raoul is a strong, very handsome name, and if I ever had a son, I would consider naming him Raoul. Whenever I hear this name, I think of 'The Phantom of the Opera', since one of the main charecters' names is Raoul.

Johnny Depp played Raoul Duke in the film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Raoul Wallenberg (born August 4, 1912, in Stockholm, Sweden — date of death uncertain) was a Swedish diplomat and a member of the influential Swedish Wallenberg family. As a Legation Counsellor in Budapest, he used his diplomatic status to save many Hungarian Jews during the later stages of World War II. After he was arrested by the Soviet Red Army it is not known what happened to him.

This name is BEAUTIFUL! I think it's sexy, refined, and comfortable all at once!

My father's name. Not a big fan of it though, but there's something strong about that name. Would name my kid Raoul IV.

I've heard of a few ways of saying this name, like Ral and Ra-ool. I think it depends on where you live.

I love the sound of this name! It's so handsome and charming.

I think it's pronounced like Ray-ooWL.

Ugh. This is the name of one of the characters in Phantom of the Opera, my most hated character. Which is sadly why the name is ruined for me.

I adore the name Raoul, it rolls of the tongue beautifully, I loved the name but a song "Raoul" by The Automatic makes me cringe. But I love the name.

The French pronunciation is, roughly, "rowl" (like owl).

Raoul Steppe was a Belgian musician, who also wrote a book and wrote poems. There is a street in Nieuwkerken-Waas named after him (my street).

Could also mean "wise wolf" from French.

I don't think that the French would be saying the l. They usually leave off the consonant at the end.

Actor Raoul Schránil and 'furriery' model Růžena Havelková have a son Raoul, born 1945.

Raoul Wallenberg - the Swedish diplomat who saved the lives of tens of thousands of Jews in Budapest by giving them Swedish passports and taking them under consular protection.

I do admire Raoul Wallenberg, but Raoul de Chagny still makes me dislike this name. Phantom forever!

Used in Italy too, although not very common. [noted -ed]

Raoul was the name of the Vicomte de Bragelonne in Alexandre Dumas' 'The Victomte of Bragelonne', a sequel to 'The Three Musketeers'. Raoul is Athos' son.

In French, "Raoul" means "conseil des loups", or "advice of wolves". I chose it for my son, who is French, because it has nothing to do with religion or war. It has very ancient origins.

Raoul Dufy was a French painter, from the turn of the century. Beautiful work, a bit like Chagall.
