Anger is not a nice word to have in a name.

I love this name! I used it for one of the main characters in a book I am writing.

I hate how the first five letters spell "anger". It's a very pretentious name anyway.

It sounds beautiful, but in a grim, gloomy way. The way a graveyard in the middle of winter is beautiful. I love the connotations with the goddess and think it'd make a great name for an anti-villain in a story.

This seems to be connected to the Latin word "angere," meaning "to strangle." It seems like a pretty cool and powerful name to me.
