For as long as I can remember, I have loved Judeo-Christian names (for men) that end in -ael
. There is just something poetic yet distinguished about them that I find very charming and attractive. :)
We can all think of a few classics in that category, such as Daniel
. Unfortunately, handsome though they may be, they are sorely overused. That is why I went to look for more uncommon and unusual names from that category, fortunately managing to find quite a few. They are all listed further below. Some of the names can actually be found in the Bible itself, others in other Judeo-Christian sources.
I would be curious to hear what your favourites are, which you would like to see used more often nowadays. Also, if you had to make a top 5 from this list, which names would you choose? Thank you for your thoughts. :)AbielAbimael
Camael (Camiel, Camuel)
Dubbiel (Dubiel, Dobiel)
Shamsiel (Shamsiel, Shashiel)
(Sarathiel, Saraqael, Zarachiel, Zachariel)
