Raif is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “kind”, “compassionate”, “softhearted”. It is derived from the R-Hamz-F Quranic root which is used in a number of places in the Quran.
Do you not see, how God has subjected everything on the earth to you, and the ships that sail on the sea by His command. He holds back the sky from falling down on the earth, except with His permission. God is most compassionate and most merciful to mankind. (Quran 22:65)
