Rachel (Also spelled Rachael and various other ways) was the wife of Jacob, also named Israel, youngest of the three patriarchs of the people of Israel. The word itself means a ewe, which is a female sheep or lamb.

If your question is how to say your name in Hebrew, it is pronounced Raxel (a 3 letter word - resh, xet, lamed).
Hope this helps. :)

Rachel - daughter of Lavan, the younger sister in the family. Her older sister was Leah.
She was so beautiful that Ya'akov (known as Israel too), who saw her by the well, agreed to work for Lavan for a period of 7 years and then marry her.
The buttom line is that he worked for her 14 years: Lavan tricked him and gave him Leah after the first 7 years. To have her as wife, he had to work 7 additional years...
You must admit, she must have been something, to have a man wait for her 14 years - and not just waiting, working for her fater during this period...
Rachel is considered the mother of the Jewish nation.
Her sons were Joseph and Benjamin.
Hope you like the story - it's extremely romantic:-)
