Angel Origin and Meaning

The name Angel is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "angel".
Angel is a perennial Hispanic boys’ 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. Angel is very popular, and very traditionally masculine, in the Latino community.

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.
