> We should say things like: "Rabinovich" -- "Rabbi's daughter"

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lida-District/name-ends.htm
    Says the "vich" suffix indicates "son."

    Rabinovich and Ravinovitch are versions of the Jewish Status name
    Rabin from the Polish rabin = rabbi. Variations include Rabinerson,
    Rabinsohn, Robinsohn, Robinzon, Rabinow, Robinov, Rabinowicz and
    others.

A web search shows that the name Rachael is Hebrew and means (or is
derived from) female sheep or ewe.
