Evangel is a boy’s name of Greek origin. It’s the masculine form of Evangeline, which derives from the Latin evangelium, meaning “gospel.” This word in turn evolved from the Greek words eu and angelma, which combined mean “good news” or “good tidings.” Choosing this name could be a fitting way to mark the best news of all—baby’s arrival! The name Evangeline was popularized by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s epic poem Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie, and more recently by actress Evangeline Lilly. Evangel, however, remains a rare and striking choice for your little one.
