I know a Rafferty - good name.

I really really like it. Good across all ages. Raff is lovely as a shortened version. It's not crazy posh like Tarquin or Monty, I think it's a bit artsy sounding.

I LOVE this name but can't get it passed DH. I definitely don't think it's posh?!

You should use it!!

Layl77 Sat 03-Aug-13 05:40:17

I like it

chestnut100 Sat 03-Aug-13 05:41:02

I wanted to use this name. Without exception everyone i told laughed or immediately told me they hated it. So I didn't smile

No, it seems a bit naff.

It's ok I have a Rafferty in my family he's 2 and it gets shortened to Raff

littlepeas Sat 03-Aug-13 09:08:51

No. I don't find it posh, at all.

I actually really like it, BUT it's a bit self consciously cool/celebby. and I have a suspicion that it might get a bit, um, downmarket in future.

Yes - for a dog

I like it. I know of one and goes by Raffi. Both are quite nice in my opinion. If you like it go for it.

rockybalboa Sat 03-Aug-13 11:34:23

Yes but I just wasn't brave enough to use it! Jude Law has a Rafferty I believe.

I'm loving the fact that the comments on here from 2009 were mainly negative bit the ones from 3013 are mainly positive!! Strange how 4 years can have such a difference!! I'm trying to think of names that everyone hates now but could be popular in 2017!! smile

Londongirl84 Sun 04-Aug-13 13:45:06

I really like it!

emmelinelucas Sun 04-Aug-13 13:59:53

I like it

TobyLerone Sun 04-Aug-13 14:38:43

Love it. It will be one of DC3's middle names, whether it is a girl or a boy. It has significance in my (Irish) family.

Oh crap. I should have RTFT. Zombie.
