What do you think? Gorgeous boy of my cousin who can't totally decide.

It's not bad, but I will always picture Ralph Wiggum in my mind when I hear it.

Raphael is nicer, IMO.

My friend has a Ralph. I love it grin

Raphael is incredibly popular were we live. In every cafe it's "Raffy eat your avocado"

Maybe not Raphael then! I don't mind Ralph, I just can't manage to get past The Simpsons.

I've seen others mention Rafe on here, but 1) Still not sure how to pronounce that, and 2) It looks like a typo for "rape", which is very grim.

If she likes Ralph, she should go with that. smile

I wanted a Ralph but dp vetoed on the basis of Wiggum.

I know a little Ralph. It suits him. Initially I though 'wiggum' but you can say that for so many names, it's about making it your own. I certainly don't think that whenever I see this little boy.

My uncle was a Ralph, outstanding man so on that alone I think it's a great name.
A friend of my sil's has a son called Ralph and he's a lovely lad. I think it's a great name.

Sorry about the repetition, dh distracted me!

I have a Ralph, it's perfect for him & I'm always getting complimented on it

we settled on Wilf in the end which has a similar sound to it, but I was compromising. Ralph is a cracking name.

I like it. Simple, cool and not overused.

Which pronounciation, Rafe or Ralf?

Ralph still reminds me of Judy Blume's book, forever... blush

Yep, like Sienna Judy Blume ruined it for me.

I love it but I would pronounce it Rafe. I think some people say Ralf so you'd have to be prepared for correcting!

EachandEveryone Tue 04-Oct-16 08:50:07

Why is it pronounced rafe?

Pipilangstrumpf Tue 04-Oct-16 09:16:58

I don't understand why you wouldn't say Ralf..? All the Ralphs I know pronounce it that way.

I like me it!

I've only ever heard Ralph pronounced as Ralf. Sometimes even spelt as Ralf.

Rafe is a different name or maybe a nickname for Rafael?

I like Ralph.
