A cherished child has many names. So even Raphael, who in Wikipedia is given as Raphael in English, as Raffael in German and Italian among other languages and as Rafael in others still. Also his last name is different. He is called Santi or Sanzio and sometimes da Urbino, after the city, where he was born. He was a painter and an architect, but probably he got most famous by his paintings of Our Lady.
