Spiritual names are always in style, and angel names for boys are no different. Named after the messengers of God in various religious scripture, angelic boy names are often a mix of devotion and strength, whether physical or emotional. You have the choice of literal interpretations of the name or names of angels in religious texts, but all are equally rich in history and meaning. Let’s flutter through them, shall we?

Angel is usually the go-to name when you think of angelic boy names, and this unisex choice is certainly handsome. Combining spiritual strength with a soft sound, it has the best of both worlds. You can branch off of him to try out variants, like Angelino or D’Angelo. They offer his meaning with a flair of style, and in most cases are less popular. Engel is the German equivalent of Angel, with his variant Engelbert having the stunning meaning “bright angel.”

Angel names for boys come in varying popularity, from the beloved Michael and Gabriel to the less common Ariel and Raziel. Pulled from religious texts, these handsome angelic boy names are shining examples. Since angel names aren’t always positive, always investigate the origin before falling head over heels. You’ll notice we didn’t include the ultra negative Lucifer, for instance. While most angel names for boys are overwhelmingly inspirational, there are a few angels of death, so use caution.

Meanings are always our favorite sides of names, and angel names for boys deliver plenty of amazing ones worth noting. Zadkiel’s “the Lord’s righteous one” leaps off the page, as does Zuriel’s “God is my rock.” Most will have heavy religious tones without sounding too obvious on the ear, winning over many parents who seek something tied to their faith, but maybe not as blatant as a name like Messiah.

With their widespread appeal, angel names for boys are a group to watch.
