Gender: M Origin of Angel: Word name Angel's Popularity in 2012: #57

Popularity: this week.

Angel is a perennial Hispanic male name, but it was Buffy the Vampire Slayer that brought it into the Anglo-male camp, where it's now heard more frequently, though it still poses some gender confusion, and its saintly associations might cause further problems. Angel is very popular with Latino families, bringing it into the Top 60 for boys--Number 227 for girls.

Other notable associations: the husband in Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles, a current character on "Dexter"--and any number of worthy baseball player namesakes.
