Subject: Rachel and other -el names

I'm curious... In doing research, every Biblical name I've come across that ends with -el means something to do with "God." I understand, as "El" is "God," but why doesn't Rachel have a similar meaning? Are there any other Biblical names that end in -el without meaning anything like "God"? I've found Jael, but that's all.

Thanks for any information you can give!
