"I love my name and my wonderful mother who gave me my name, if I had been a boy I would have been named Richard and she like Michelle so she just blended the two together. I have been called Michelle, Rachel, Rochelle, Rachelle etc. but I don't mind. As a child my grandparents called me Shelly, In college I was called Rikki and now I am just Richelle. My nieces and nephew call me Auntie Shell. I have met a few along the way with my name and same spelling but we seem to be very few and far between." Aug. 20, 2018:
"My name us Richelle and many people call me Michelle but im okay with it since it's close enough I have to correct them and they apologize it's fine since I wasn't mad.I love the nicknames with this name!I often get called Shelly." Nov. 22, 2016:
"My name is Richelle,and as I have an unusual surname I have spent much of my life spelling my name. I was born in 1951 and Richelle is a combination of my father and Grandmother's names Richard and Ellen . I've never met a Richelle who was older than me, in fact I had never heard of another Richelle until I was about 19.The name was never in any traditional Baby Name books in the last century (that I saw) . It's only since the advent of google that I've seen it listed." May. 4, 2015:

"My name is Rychelle (it's said the same way it just has a Y instead of a I) and I LOVE it! I have only met one other person with the same name, but she spelled it Rachelle. People often spell it Richelle,Rachelle,Rochelle or Rayshelle but never Rychelle. I also often get called Rachel, but it does not matter to me :-)" Sep. 8, 2007:
"I Love my name! It's very unique. Not ever met anyone who spells it like I do. I don't usually get called by the right name and eveyone miss spells it. My aunts and uncles too. The only thing I don't like is that I can't buy things with my name in it unless they personalize it right there in front of you. I find cute things that have my name on it because it's so unique. But I wouldn't change it for the World!" May. 21, 2007:

"my name is Richelle and i have to say, it's not too bad of a name to have.
it's not something so crazy that i regret my parents naming me at, while at the same time it is quite unique and personal to me.. although i have met a few other Richelle's (or Rochelle's) in my life time.
I am usually referred to by family as my nickname however, which is Shell." Feb. 4, 2006:
"I think that it is a good name because you dont hear it a lot so i think it is TWO THUMBS UP!" May. 21, 2005:
