  • "Rachelle is my niece's name and I love it. She gets called Rachel a lot, and she hates it but has given up on trying to convince people to call her by her proper name. Personally, I hate that she gets Rachel instead of her real name. It's Rah-shell or Rah-Chell (in Spanish). Our family calls her Rachi." Jul. 15, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hi, my name is Rachelle. I'm still a student in school, but about to finish High School. All the substitute teachers call me Rachel when they first see the name. My name is pronounced Ra Shell. Some people at my school think it's funny to call me Rachel, and a girl named Rachel, Rachelle. It's annoying, but at least they know my name. I love my weird name, and it's nice not having such a common name. I also love the nicknames I got, Shelly, Rochelly, and Rachelly. I defiantly love my name." Mar. 17, 2015: Report as inappropriate

It was always been pronounced as Rah-shel, I liked it most especially when they call me nicknames like Rash and Shell, I find them beautiful, but nevertheless, I always wanted my name to be pronounced as Rey-shel, but reading all of thoughts about the similar name makes my heart somersault with joy.

  • "I used to adore my name (Rachelle). My mother loves my name and raised me to feel proud to have it. It wasn't until I was 28 and naming my own baby daughter that I fell in love with classic names, and came to dislike my '70s/'80s one-hit-wonder (if you could even call it a hit) name. People, especially English speakers, often pronounce it wrong: like Raquel, Rachel, Ray-chelle, Rochelle. The "pure" meaning is nice enough, but I really wish I had a more timeless name."

  • "My name is also Rachelle & I absoultely love it. All my life people have pronounced it wrong. I hate the name Rachel/Rochelle/or even Michelle. As I have gotten older I always correct people. I did not meet another person named Rachelle until I think I was about 17 yrs old. I think it is a very pretty & sexy name. I even had a friend name her baby after me because she loved the name."
