Rae. And I think it's a gorgeous name. I would use it if having more.

Rae, although I'd probably go with Rey a la The Force Awakens. But I'm a dork.

Rae is a lovely middle name for a girl.

If I were to use it I'd go with Rae.

Yes - Rae

I'm with Nova - use Rey!

No, I wouldn't, I think its awful and mainly seen attached via hyphen to something twee girly or badly spelled unusual, like Lexxii-Rae or something.

And it's lovely, reminds me of my Mum's lovely, gentle friend.

Rae. Very pretty.

Agree. It's very chavvy round here to have Ava/Eva/Lily-May/Mae/Rae etc

Personally I wouldnt choose either, However making a decision between the two I prefer Rae

Like poster above - no, I wouldn't, personally.
However, if you are, then I would use Rae, as Ray is a male name.

Rae - but I only like it as a stand alone name. Not tagged onto something else.

No. it reminds me of a very unpleasant man that I know.

Raye smile

Raye can be a girls or boys name. I like this spelling, with an e, like Faye.

Ray is a boys name and I don't particularly like how Rae looks.
