My name is Angelle and it is pronounced ANNE-JELL.

This is my name and everyone pronounces it as ON-gelle, not an jelle. It's French.

If this was a French name it would be pronounced awn-ZHEL. Angelle is not a French name. It is simply an English variant of Angel invented in a French style.

It's true that it would be pronounced that way if it were a French name. In fact, someone who primarily spoke French would probably see it and pronounce it the same way s/he would pronounce Angèle.

It maybe could be considered a French name (though not traditionally), because apparently it's becoming a new trend in France or French-speaking countries that feminine cognates of names such as Michel double the consonant and add an e to the end, rather than adding the grave on the e and adding an e to the end. It's pronounced the same, it's just a different pronunciation device. Hence the reason you see Michelle more often than Michèle.
