Angel is a Baby Boy Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Angel.

The name Angel is a boy's name. 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, and its saintly associations might cause further problems. Angel is very popular with Latino families. 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.
