Rafael

god has healed
ORIGIN: Spanish
POPULARITY: 541
This name is the Spanish and Portuguese spelling of Raphael, which is based on the Hebrew Rafa-el, which means “God has healed.” One of the seven archangels, Raphael was a whiz at healing. No wonder his name has been winning over parents since the end of the 19th century. It certainly won over Ana Ortiz of “Devious Maids,” who named her son Rafael in 2011, as did director Guy Ritchie with his son the same year.
