Angelina Jolie is a perfect name. As beautiful as she is. Rolls off the tongue. Goes with any surname :D

Angelina is so sweet. Funnily enough it gives me a Southern vibe, but I think that's probably due to the -leen ending. I love that it's so multicultural and would work all over the world without difficulty. Angelina Jolie is also a positive namesake due to her humanitarian work.
