Rashell is a variant of the Hebrew girl’s name Rachel, meaning “ewe.” In the Hebrew Bible, Rachel is one of Jacob’s two wives, along with her sister, Leah. A beautiful yet tragic figure, Rachel was Jacob’s true love, yet struggled to have a child with him. She finally gave birth to Joseph, who became Jacob’s favorite son. Rachel has long been a popular name in the US and worldwide, reaching peak popularity in 1996 thanks to Jennifer Aniston’s character in Friends. Rashell is a less common variant of this name, perhaps inspired by the similar French name, Rochelle. If you’re looking for a more unusual spelling to make baby stand out, Rashell could be the perfect choice.
