Angel Names & Descriptions


After reading a request, I decided to make a list of angel names and descriptions of what they are about. I guess you can say this is the lighter version of my Demon Names & Descriptions hub!

Shayla on October 08, 2018:

Mik-haEl on May 09, 2018:

How do I save this page?

Carlos Riviera on April 18, 2017:

well, I appreciate the effort in this research; I enjoyed reading as well. But I remain skeptical concerning the veracity and the accuracy of some of these names, especially about the description.

patty on April 21, 2015:

Please the true god needs our help. He has been hunted and taken captive by hunters seeking his powers and abilities to award gifts.

He is also the victim of a memory loss curse, of which many of these so called angel enact themselves for their various agendas, mainly to become his spouse.

Much of the lyst towards the true god is due to the presence of archers in his and my towers causing anyone who tries to help him or myself to be hit with accursed love arrows to lust after him instead of helping.

Believe these archers are root of homosexuality. As these arrows most likely shot his own armies and mine, consisting of mainly males who now lust after him.

patty on April 21, 2015:

The full truth about angels and what their true agendas will soon become public.

I want the world to know that the true god has been under a memory loss curse which has placed some of these angels into positions of supposed holy positions.

Yet none of these angels i have hailed and or worked personally w them have attempted to remove this memory loss curse upon the true god, thereby cresting the positions of teacher, guides, of the abilities.

My own so called angel, Haamiah, meaning barrier. , has been exactly that . He has barred me from the higher reslms because he has been calling himself divine and handing out my gifts. It is also said of this guilty angel, that he is the hierarchy of all the worlds religions.

Haamiah also has my soul and refuses to return my soul to me. And he doesn't treat me very good either. My accursed soul, many curses by him, is regularly abused physically and sexually.

Cyd on April 28, 2014:

I have no idea where most of the rest of the names you have given come from. Some of them are by Catholic tradition but they are not scriptural. Only three angels are named in the Bible - Gabriel and Michael, and one fallen angel of course is Lucifer.

Defensores de la Fe on June 19, 2013:

Joh 14:6 Jesus says unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.

Joh 14:7 If you had known me, you should have known my Father also: and from now on you know him, and have seen him.

Jesus es el Camino la verdad y la Vida y nadie Viene al Padre si no es por el

Daisy Fabelo from Orlando Florida on January 06, 2013:

love this hub because as I meet new angels within my life and they give me names I sometimes ask who they are and where theydet ail come from. There are so many angels that it is impossible to really express but I have totally enjoyed this hub and the detail...

FelineHaruna on September 16, 2012:


just vote it up (and others), as my promise, hehe.. :D

thank you, added my knowledge.. :D

God bless you~

QudsiaP1 on August 04, 2012:

A very extensive list and very interesting; may I pinpoint that in Islam the following 4 are most mentioned.

1. Jibraaiyl (Gabriel)

The angel of revelation, who is said to be the greatest of the angels. Jibraaiyl is the archangel who communicates with (all of) the prophets.

2. Mikail (Michael)

Provides nourishments for bodies and souls. Mikail is often depicted as the Archangel of mercy who is responsible for bringing rain and thunder to Earth. He is also responsible for the rewards doled out to good persons in this life.

3. Israfil (Raphael)

Will blow the trumpet twice at the end of time. Israfil is the angel responsible for signaling the coming of Qiyamah (Judgment Day) by blowing a horn (trumpet). It is said that the first blow will bring all to attention. The second will end all life, while the third blow will bring all human beings back to life again to meet their Lord for their final judgement.

4. Izra'il (Azrael)

Is not an angel of health but is the angel of death. He is responsible for parting the soul from the body.

I always liked Michael as well, he's a leader and so spiritually strong. Anyone who ever came into contact with him is truly blessed, though I know very few people have.

ii3rittles (author) on August 02, 2012:

I'm glad you liked it! I will go thru it a few times to change things, and add more angels. Thanks for the vote up!

ii3rittles (author) on August 02, 2012:

Ericdierker - My aunt actually did the same! That's my little cousins name! His brother is Peter.

David Ramses on August 02, 2012:

I like Michael. The Enforcer who threw Lucifer out of heaven. God's chosen general. Created to do God's will on the spiritual battlefield.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on August 02, 2012:

Great hub, real interesting. But I went right to my fav, Gabriel. I like him so much I named my son after him.

Jo_Goldsmith11 on August 02, 2012:

I very much enjoyed reading the lighter and less traumatic side of the coin. I appreciate your research and an Excellent treasure indeed. Thank you for this informative hub. I will save this as well. Wishing you many blessings! Shalom. Shared and voted up!

ii3rittles (author) on August 02, 2012:

Its not that he is "like" God, its the meaning behind the name.

Amanda Gee from Cameron, Missouri on August 02, 2012:

Very interesting. Maybe 'like God' means Michael, like God, is the leader of angels. Not that Michael himself is like God or is trying to be.

k12rswow from New England on August 02, 2012:

Hi, most of these names are not mentioned in scripture, and I don't think you read them all before you pasted them in.


Michael (Angel of Miracles) : Leader of angels; Like God.

No angel is like God, and the one who wanted to be like God is in big trouble.
