There’s no better way to convey to the world that your little girl is an angel than with this idyllic name. It comes from the Latin boys' name Angelus, which translates to “angel” but acquired the “messenger of God” meaning from the Bible. The name has been in use since the 18th century and enjoys widespread popularity in many European countries such as Spain, Greece and Italy, though it has been eclipsed in the US by Angelina and Angelica. Famous Angelas include the chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel.
