Really like the nickname Rafi if dc2 turns out to be a boy in a 4 weeks. But not sure what the full name could be. Originally was going for Reuven but not sure. Child would have Jewish heritage on its dads side but not be brought up Jewish or in particularly Jewish area if that makes sense? Their dad has just left me (whooooole other thread) so feeling a bit wobbly about having a name so strongly tied to him! Though I do still quite like it.
I think confused trying not to be vindictive and disregard name purely out of spite but difficult to judge just how I feel at the moment!

I've always loved Rafferty but not sure on it anymore when someone pointed out it sort of sounds like a springer spaniel!

Considering Finbar for middle name as its a name with strong connections to my dad's area of Ireland.

Raphael/Rafael would be my first thought smile

Yeah mine too, just not overly keen as have looked after a lot of Raphaels. Joys of being a former nanny and teacher!

Rafi is a full name in itself I think.

Just Raf? Like the designer Raf Simons. I think that's a great name.

Rafi for Raphael is bee-yoo-tiful and Raphael Finbar sounds fab.

But so sorry you're going through such a shit time! flowers
