Angela - Name Meaning and Origin

The girl's name Angela \a-nge-la, an-gela\ is pronounced AN-je-lah. It is of Greek origin, and its meaning is "messenger; messenger of God". From Church Latin, a feminine form of the boy's name Angelus. The older feminine form Angelis has been replaced by Angela, which became popular in Britain and America from the 18th century. The word "angel" is also used as an affectionate term for a good (or pretty) girl. Angie is the pet form; Aingeal is the Irish Gaelic version.
