Meaning:Exalted, noble; God heals
A boy’s name of Arabic origin, Rafi carries an elevated air with its meaning “exalted” and “noble.” Derived from Rafeaq or Raffi, Rafi’s roots lie in the names of God in Islam. Rafi may also stem from the Hebrew Raphael, borne by the Judeo-Christian Archangel Raphael, meaning “God heals.” In Islam, Raphael is akin to Archangel Israfil. A name radiant with angelic energy and high-minded vibes, don’t be surprised if baby Rafi finds enlightenment sooner rather than later.
