I like John a lot, and adore the nickname Johnny. It's a sturdy classic and the combination makes for a very dashing name and all around good guy. And obviously, Johnny Angel isn't boring seeing as there was an old song from the 60s - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4huBAf9LIEM
And now there is a modern singer who goes by Johnny Angel as well. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPqm6bSeSSg)\
I like the suggestion of John Simon Angel that others have made and have a few of my own to throw in:
John Lucas Angel
John Paul Angel
John David Angel
John Joseph Angel
John Henry Angel
John Matthew Angel
John Alexander Angel
John Thomas Angel
John Daniel Angel
John Zachary Angel
John Robert Angel
John Charles Angel
John Patrick Angel
John Christopher Angel
John Anthony Angel
John Reuben Angel
John Stephen Angel

Honestly, John is one of the most common and, well, boring names I can think of. If you really like it, though, you should use it, because it does sound good with your surname, and it is a classic that will age well. I don't feel like John Simon Angel flows very well, but if it has special meaning to you and you like it, then by all means use it.-Bailey-

To me, yes, John has a very boring vibe. It probably has nothing to do with how overused/dated John could probably be, though, and everything to do with my experience with the name. I went through my family tree once, and counted all the Johns and Johnnys, and there were 13 of them! For that reason, I've opted for just Jack to honor my dad, brother, and grandfather (all John Robert), instead. But I think it's great for someone else's child, and I can definitely see its appeal!
John Simon is really cool! I would probably use it as a double-barrel name half the time. John Simon is spunky and fun and classy, and he could always opt to go by just John, Jack, Johnny, or even Simon/Si. John Simon Angel works really well.
I've always liked John Michael, John Micah, and John Benjamin...
