Rafe: baby boy name meaning and popularity


A diminutive of the German name Ralph ("wolf counsel," whatever that means), but it can also be a diminutive of Rafferty or Rafael. Regardless of what it's short for, you'll call your little Rafe by everything but his name anyway if he has pets or siblings.


Um, Rafe.
