The name Rafael means “he who has healed” or “he who has cured”. It is a name with a great religious connotation and that appears for the first time in the Holy Scriptures, specifically in the book of Tobias, as the archangel who healed this patriarch from his blindness. Since then, he has become a highly revered figure among believers of different religions.
Rafael is a name of Hebrew origin. It comes from the word “רפאל” which was later Latinized as “Rāp̄ā”. In any case, its translation is "he who heals" or "God heals you." Although it is an old name, its greatest popularity began in the Renaissance, thanks to the works of the Italian painter Raphael Sanzio.
