It is also said that Azazel was the name of an Angel cast down from heaven much like Lucifer. In order to gain God's forgiveness Azazel was given the burden of bearing the Sins of man/others.

In the apocryphal Book of Enoch, Azazel is one of the chiefs of the fallen angels, who "taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures." (chapter 8, verse 1, translated by R. H. Charles).

I heard a theory that this means "strength of God", but I'm not sure. "El" means God and Azaziah translates the "strength" in Hebrew, so maybe.
Azazel and Semyazza were the two angels that led the angelic group the Grigori, or Watchers, to mate with mortal women, creating the Nephilim. According to the apocryphal Book of Enoch and parts of the Old Testament, this is why God sent the Great Flood.

The word "azaz" means rebellion or arrogance, and "el" means God, so this likely means "rebellion against God".
