Other Origin(s):Spanish
Meaning:Strengthened by God; Hazel tree
The gender-neutral name Azael is of Hebrew and Spanish origin. This modern spelling is rooted in the names Azariah and Hazel, meaning "strengthened by God" and "hazel tree." In the Hebrew Bible, Azariah refers to many fascinating figures, from guardian angels to high priests. Interestingly, the more common form, Azazel, has inspired villainous characters in Marvel comics and the TV shows Supernatural and Lucifer. Perhaps these opposite stories of good and evil will teach baby valuable lessons about right and wrong.
