- Here's that guy/girl name thing again, but this time the spelling is different. It's extremely unique yet sounds like it would make the perfect middle name. But I prefer it as a first name, or at least as the name to refer to.
- Rae Ellyn
Always my favorite name. I only know one and she is strong yet feminine like the name. "Rae" for short is cool. So I adopted it as my middle name when I got married since it is also half of my maiden name "Raedel".
Rae was originally used as a short form of Rachel, though it is used on its own now, sometimes as a feminine form of Ray. In the 20th century, it also started being used as a short form of newly-created names like Rayanna, Raianne, Raelynn etc.
