Comments for the name Anshel

Comments for ANSHEL:

According to the "Oxford Dictionary of First Names", Anshel is a variant of the Yiddish name Antshel, which in turn is derived from Latin 'angelus' meaning "angel". Not sure how much stock one should put in that etymology, but I thought I'd mention it anyhow, just in case.
