  1. Love the sound and the meaning of the name

  2. She was my first born. And my husband’s name is Israel. I thought it would be fine if her name was related to the Israel from the Bible. So I thought about Raquel or Rebeca. Raquel was his favorite and beloved wife, and Rebeca his mother. So we choose Raquel.
