    I would prefer Rafael and shorten it to Raf or Raffy.

    I've got a Rafael and we spelled it that way as my dh is Spanish so made more sense. I do usually spell it out at dr etc when they are searching but it's not that much of a big deal.
    He's always been known as Rafa. I don't think he would even respond if we called him Rafael!
    Although I'm obviously biased, most people I've come across love the name.

    Rafael, because I like Raf as a nickname.

    I had this same dilemma naming my DS. We were sitting in my OBs room looking at the baby name book and saw it spelt with a 'ff' as the italian origin so as we both have an italian background we went with that. Most of the time is Raff/Raffy.

    My son would be so pumped if he'd been named Raphael lol. If he got to choose, it would be Leonardo!! Anyway, my vote is for Raphael, I don't think it matters if you shorten to Rafa or Rafy
