Angel Name Meanings
Angel names find their roots within ancient cultures, such as Babylon, Assyria, and Egypt, as well as within Jewish, Christian and Muslim lore. Over thousands of years, angel names have evolved in spelling, meaning and use within religions, mysticism and magic, where the name of an angel is thought important in order to invoke angelic help.
Many of the angel names include a suffix word meaning, "of God" (-el), or yah, which means, "Lord." This way, angel names portray the importance of the angel's connection with the divine. Angel names are, thus, traditionally viewed as being powerful. Most angel names will have the "el" incorporated; most fallen angel names will not.
Angel names used most frequently and best known are Gabrael, Raphael, Uriel and Ariel.
