This name also means like an angel, or of an angel, in Greek only though. It is also the name of the lady who was attatched to death in a short story. I do forget the name though, good story it was despite my temporary idiocy.

Longfellow biographer Charles Calhoun claims that Longfellow invented the name Evangeline for his poem, though others argue it was simply a very uncommon Acadian name. It was certainly not in wide use before "Evangeline"'s publication.
