Gender: M Origin of Angel: Word name Angel's Popularity in 2014: #67

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 70 for boys--Number 275 for girls.

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