My name is Rakel, which is actually a norwegian/scandanavian version of Rachel, and everyone thinks my name is Raquel! I feel like the only person in the world named Rakel, haha. But I was doing some research and It's on a lot of baby name pages now...

9/11/2022 7:58:44 AM

Aww i love this name!! Wish i was named Raquel!! Mebbe i'll name my kid :)

9/8/2022 11:33:08 PM

My name is Raquel and I really love the name. As someone said the name'sound lovely but with a bite to show we're strong as well. And yes throughout all my time in school the teache's constantly called me Rachel. It didn't bother me too much but sometimes I wodnered how they could not see it was clearly NOT Rachel. I was grateful when one or two of the teache's pronounced it right! I don't care though It's kind of fun these days correcting those teache's lol.

Spelt: Raquel Prounounced Ra-kel Usually mistaken for Rachel or Rochelle. Never met or known of any one with this name. Usually mispelt as Racquel

8/23/2022 4:26:42 PM

my name is also raquel. i love it, i think its completely unique and a nice alternative to rachel. sometimes i feel like my name doesnt fit me because (not to be racist) but i am not Hispanic or of African decent. I'm a short, white girl but i love my name anyway! i have tons of nicknames too, the most common being "rocky". Sometimes i feel like girls name raquel are a little trashy, or thats what theyre stereotype is. Me personally i am not trashy at all and i like to think of myself and a nice respectable young lady.

8/22/2022 11:09:54 AM

lol yeah people are always saying "Rachel"and im like how do you get Rachel if It's spelled Raquel but for the most part people usually get it right people will just call me Rockell lol or the rockster lol wired i know but the only person that really matters how they say my name is my BF lol cause if not there will be problems lol no jk but i love my name as well were just UNIQUE ;)

8/22/2022 6:35:24 AM

My name is Raquel! People normally say my name like Ra-k-well But It's pronounced like Ra-kell. I wonder why....

8/14/2022 7:21:18 AM

My name, or as I sometimes spell it for funnies, "Ruhkel." i've been called Raqui, Kel, Quelly, Roxi, Rack, Rockwell, Rakwel, Ricky, Rafiki, Raquelina, Raquelly, R. Kelly, etc. i've also been called Rachel, Rochelle, and Roxanne, which is tiresome. And the pronunciation "Rackell" doesn't work for me. "Raw-kel" is acceptable but I prefer "Ruh-kel." I love my unique name but in Las Vegas there are a lot of us! I liked being the only one in my hometown ;)

7/31/2022 2:03:36 AM

My name is Raquel!!! LOVE IT!!! No one has my name around me, that i know of. People call me quel, rocky, rock and rackell. I also hate it when people call me Rachael, there is a Q in my name people.

7/30/2022 1:15:00 PM

my name is raquel , but i havent been called raquel in so long, i go by Kelly. just recently ive been'thinking of going back to raquel because ive come to appreciate that name, but everyone around me knows me as kelly and i even forget that my true name is raquel~ --good name though

7/18/2022 5:36:00 PM

well it is my name but It's spelled differently. Rhaquel with an "h", It's silent, so It'should be pronounced as the normal raquel. when i tell people what my name is for the first time they have no idea how to spell it.

6/20/2022 12:36:18 AM

My names Raquel and I luv it. Alot of people always spell it incorrectly or mispronounce it but over all it is so AWESOMENESS. I hav a couple of nicknames, like Raq, Raccoon, Racquet, Raquellie and Raqster

6/15/2022 8:58:30 AM

5/16/2022 5:12:36 AM

hey my name's raquel! i go to a french school and people are always pronouncing it "rockell." i don't hate my name though and i never will. i love writing it because i think It's awesome having Q's in your name. i get used to people saying my name wrong, i just laugh.

5/5/2022 4:40:12 PM name is Raquel also. People pronounce the qu like a k..but i don't mind. But some people pronounce it like Rachel. How in the world can you watch qu and pronounce it like ch. Some of my teache's do that when'they call my name. I don't answer cause my name's Raquel not rachel..hehehe. Some people spell it wrong Rachel or Racquel. Only once have i seen somebody spell my name correctly and i didn't have to tell them how. Still love my name though :)

Hello to my fellow Raquel's don't we just have the best name in the world. It's nice to have a different name. However I hate it when people call me Rachel. I'mean, really, how can you get Rachel out of Raquel. I love my name and wished people would take the time to get it right. It's not really that hard.

2/12/2022 8:16:12 AM

I love my name but not always. Im adopted and since I was 7 years old my grandparents told me I should use my full name because it was beautiful and respectful. I been called Rockie and I asked my birth mother why and she'said cause I came out with fists. Um HELLO!!!,All kids did but I do LOVE my name and it is very beautiful but one pet peeve is people pronouncing it Rachel for over half my life!!! Thank you to our great nation for teaching the "smart ones"

2/11/2022 6:39:00 AM
