Gender: M Meaning of Gabriel: "God is my strength" Origin of Gabriel: Hebrew Gabriel's Popularity in 2014: #24

Gabriel -- the name of the archangel who heralded the news of Jesus' birth, appearing in Christian, Jewish and Muslim texts, the angel of mercy, life, joy, judgment, truth, and dreams, who presides over Paradise -- is fast becoming a biblical favorite, firmly in the Top 25. In addition to all his other responsibilities, Gabriel is the patron saint of broadcasters and diplomats, and governs Mondays and the month of January. Gabriel has proven itself a friendly and appealing alternative to Michael, that other, long-reigning archangel.
