Rafael’s plea

This is Rafael here, Margaret’s new hero. At least that’s the name she’s given me. She decided I was going to be Spanish but I’m not, I’m English, and I want an English name. She has written two whole chapters calling me Rafael and I hate it. So I need some help, guys.

I run a global chain of hotels and initially I was Raphael De Souza. But I think she told you that De Souza is already the name of a hotel group. So I not only need a Christian name, I need a surname that will look good and impressive on all of my hotels.

Can you get your thinking caps on for me? I’ll be eternally grateful.

    I'm not at my most creative today but I'm going to give it a spin. I'm suggesting Aiden which means "born of fire" and I think that's pretty appropriate for an alpha male 😉 but if you want something quirky there's Alston. I've never known an Alston but it certainly is different ande I'm not so sure I'd want to take him on 🙂 As for last names… I stumbled across Ashcroft the other day 🙂

    What about Rafe? It's a good English compromise on Rafael…x Abby

  • Michelle Styles says:

    I was going to suggest Rafe but Abby got there first.
    For last names check village names. Alston is a village in Cumbria.

    Thanks, Lacey. I don't think Aiden would suit this hero, but I'll certainly bear it in mind for the future. Alston's good too. He'll go on my list.

    Abby & Michelle. I like Rafe. This would definitely suit him.

    Michelle, I remember years ago looking on a map for surnames. I'd forgotten about it. It's amazing what names you can come up with.
