Angel is a word name that is well known in both the US and Spain. The Greek meaning of the word angel is “messenger,” but in the Bible, the word signifies a more divine meaning, “messenger from God.” According to Social Security data, Angel reached the height of its popularity as a boys' name from 2005 to '07, thanks to Spanish-speaking families in the US. It also received a huge boost from Angel, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off starring David Boreanaz. Today there are more Angels in America than ever before, and some of them are girls.
