Angels are mythical or spiritual beings depicted as messengers of God, who guide and protect people. They are portrayed as having halos, wearing white robes, and floating through the air with the help of their majestic wings.

Most of us are familiar with Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel, the Archangels. But there are many other angels who are not very well known. There are Biblical angels, cherubs, seraphim, and guardian angels overseeing several months, days, natural, elements and Zodiac signs. Besides, there are simple and straightforward angel names like Angelo, Angel, and Angelica.

If you want to give your little baby a name that means angel, then MomJunction has just the list for your little cherub.

Angelic Baby Names For Boys:

1. Cael:

The name Cael belongs to the angel of the zodiac sign Cancer. He was also one of the warriors of the Irish mythology. The ascendance of Cael to the top 1000 baby names can be attributed to its similarity with Kale and Cale. And since the name is short already, you don’t even have to snip it further for the nickname.

2. Castiel:

The moniker Castiel vaulted into the top 1000 baby names by riding on the wings of the angel hero in the famous television series “Supernatural”. This moniker also derives some appeal because of the ‘Cas’ syllable in it, just like Cassius and Cassian. For the nickname, you can opt for simple and straightforward, Cas. The meaning of this Hebrew name is, ‘my cover is God’.


3. Haniel:

Haniel or Hanniel is the anglicized form of the Hebrew name ‘Chammuw’e’ and means ‘favored of God.’ In the Bible, Haniel is the name of the leader of the Asher tribe. And in the Jewish lore, Haniel is the name of the angel associated with the planet Venus. So you have a dual reference here!

4. Gabriel:

Gabriel is the archangel who gave the news of Jesus’ birth. He is featured in all the Abrahamic texts. Gabriel also presides over the heaven as an angel of joy, life, truth, dreams, and judgment. As a Biblical name, Gabriel has been one of the top 25 baby names for eight years. It’s mostly opted by parents who want an appealing alternative to Michael.

5. Michael:

In the Bible, Michael is the archangel who led the other angels in a war against Satan. He is one of the two archangels recognized by Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike. In the Michael, meaning ‘who is like God’ was the most popular American boys’ name for over half a century. This moniker is now in the ninth spot and is given to over 15000 babies every year.

6. Javan:

Javan, the son of Noah in the Bible, is believed to be the ancestor of the Greek people and the guardian angel of Greece. It’s a Hebrew name and means ‘Greece.’ This name remained in vogue for over a decade, but fell out of favor in the turn of the century. We think it will now make an unusual and classic choice.

7. Raphael:

Raphael is one of the seven archangels who attended the throne of God as the angel of healing. He’s also considered the patron of science, doctors, travelers, and healing. This name sounds both powerful and artistic. Raphael, the Renaissance painter, is the most noteworthy namesake. Even several celebrities have chosen this name for their sons, including Ana Ortiz and Robert De Niro. Currently, it’s one of the top 10 names in France.

The Best Angelic Names for Your Little Angel (Fingers Crossed)

Most new parents have high hopes that their babies will turn out to be sweet little souls who smile and coo and sleep peacefully like a real-life angel — so why not name them after one? Angelic names for babies — not to mention baby names that literally mean “angel” — do exist, and they’re not all religious.

Space baby names - Polaris

Okay, yes, “angels” originated in the Bible. They are, after all, otherworldly beings who supposedly act as messengers for the Christian God. But these days, the word does not have to hold religious connotations; in fact, we’re guilty of using the term for just about any person — or particularly well-behaved pet — who embodies peace and serenity. And hey, isn’t that what we hope for our babies?

Angelic names ring especially true when you spend those quiet moments staring at your sleeping “angel” — but as plenty of parents know, as that angel-baby grows into young adulthood they can become far from angelic. In fact, although angelic names for babies are on the rise (as are many “expectation” names), according to founder Jennifer Moss, you may want to think carefully before setting on an angelic name for your little one. “The problem with those types of names is that they infuse an expectation of a certain characteristic or personality trait into your child — a trait that they might not be able to live up to,” Moss says. “What happens if ‘Justice’ has to go before a judge? Or your ‘Angel’ doesn’t feel angelic all of the time? We at don’t feel that’s fair to impose on your child for the rest of their lives.”

Still, if you have your heart and mind firmly set on an angel name that will always bring you back to your child’s cherubic days, no matter how whiny a teenager they’ve become, go ahead and check out the list below. The angelic names for baby girls, boys, and kids of any gender ahead are fit for a real-life cherub — or at least a kid who looks angelic even when they misbehave.

29. Rosangela

‘Rosangela’ is a female name of Italian, American origin. It’s an incredible name derived by combining two names, ‘Rose’ and ‘Angela,’ meaning “Rose of an angel,” or “messenger of God.” This name sounds feels and is beautiful, due in part to the romantic first syllable. Overall, it’s a very unique name. According to statistics, within the United States, you’re likely to find more Rosangela’s in the state of California than in the other states.

30. Seraphina

‘Seraphina,’ meaning “fiery-winged,” is derived from the Biblical name, ‘Seraphim,’ of a six-winged angel called Seraphim. It’s a beautiful name, with its biblical association making it quite a few notches beyond being angelic. This appealing, feminine name of Hebrew origin, has close variants ‘Serena’ and ‘Sophia,’ and a widely acceptable nickname ‘Sera.’ Celebrity couple ‘Ben Affleck’ and ‘Jennifer Garner’ named their second daughter Seraphine.

31. Siofra 

The attractive feminine name ‘Siofra’ is a name of modern (18th century) Irish (Gaelic) origin. The meaning of this name is “changeling, sprite.” A sprite is a supernatural entity (fairy-like or ethereal), while changeling was thought to be a fairy child as per European mythology. Having roots in Irish superstition, this celestial name has been rather uncommon. Yet, it’s now starting to pick up, at least in Ireland.

32. Tien

Its unique origin makes the wonderful girl’s name ‘Tien’ a perfect choice for your baby girl. Tien is of Vietnamese origin. It has the wonderful meanings “angel, spirit, fairy, or the first one” associated with it. The meanings just outlined make it a truly universal name, while it’s also sweet, simple, and pleasantly unique at the same time. No matter what faith you may be from, a name such as this is perfect for your daughter.

33. Tangie

‘Tangie’ is a girl’s name of American origin, meaning “angelic.” This cute given name is certainly not an unheard of name in most English-speaking countries. It’s derived as a variation of the female name ‘Angela,’ or a combination of the two names ‘Tammy’ and ‘Angie.’ Namesakes include actress Tangie Ambrose.

34. Vanina

The shorter variant of the Portuguese, Spanish origin name ‘Evangelina’ is the elegant female name ‘Vanina,’ meaning “bringer of good news.” This name is popular in France and Germany mainly. Also, if you happen to love vanilla-flavored ice cream, but can’t name your daughter that, then this is the closest name to that effect.

35. Xeraphina

‘Xeraphina’ is an American origin name for girls’, meaning “Seraphim” or “angel.” This “x” name is a double whammy, for being a name that starts with a rare starting point, whilst sounding and meaning something so beautiful and relevant. If you like the name  ‘Seraphina,’ yet would like a bit of spice added to it to make it even more distinct, then go for Xeraphina.

Summing Up

Nothing compares to the beautiful significance of an “angel,” except your brand new bundle of joy. This is why naming your bundle of joy a name that means something angelic, is a heavenly and virtuous deed your daughter will always be thankful to her parents for.  The names listed above are all symbolic of the message of God. No matter what faith you’re from, the significance of love, hope, purity, faith, honesty, and inner strength are all angelic characteristics you would like your child to imbibe.
