Meaning:Friend; Gentle
If you’ve got a friend in baby, then consider the name Rafik. A derivative of the Arabic name Rafiq, this respelling is just as beautiful and will undoubtedly connect baby to their heritage. Meaning “friend” and “gentle,” little Rafik will learn the true value of being kind and helping others. Your newest BFF can look up to Syrian-German author, Rafik Schami, who is one of the world’s leading figures in migrant literature. If baby prefers soccer, they can look to Algerian soccer players Rafik Djebbour or Rafik Saïfi for some inspiration. No matter the path they choose, little Ray is sure to be a force of good in this world.
