messenger or messenger of God
The singer Adele put this old-world Italian name in the spotlight briefly when she gave it to her son in 2012. It’s the Italian form of Angelus, which is derived from “angel” and means “messenger of God.” Its popularity peaked in the 1920s after scores of Italians immigrated to the US. The heavenly female equivalents are Angela and Angelina.
