This name is pronounced nah-tah-nah-el in Hebrew.

You have the vowels on the Hebrew mistaken. As you wrote it, it would be NatanAl, instead of NatanEl (Sorry I can't show you as I don't have the Hebrew vowels on this computer).

This isn't the most common spelling of this name but I like the biblical reference to it.

I really love this name, and it's one of the names I know I want to give to my son. Also, I like this so much better than Nathaniel. I don't know why, but the "i" really bothers me.

Nathanael has been my favorite boy's name for the last 15 years. I love the meaning "Gift of God."

The Greek form of Nathanael is ναθαναηλ.

I plan on, if I ever have a son, naming him this. I think it's strong biblical, and Nathan makes a nice nickname. It's very masculine but works for a child. PERFECT!

Nathanael West was a sardonic American author best known for his short novels Miss Lonelyhearts (which you should read) and The Day of the Locust.

Hmm, I never knew of this spelling before. I prefer it being spelled "Nathaniel" though. Oh well, I still love this name. =D.

I love this name. Because of the meaning, God has given or the gift of God. In my Bible language is "Natanael".

Hebrew names with the same meaning include Netanyahu and Yonatan. In modern Hebrew, the "th" sound is usually pronounced "t". Some Aramaic dialects continue to use "th".

I think Nathaniel is a better spelling.

A very handsome, powerful name. I think the nickname Nate ruins the strong, handsome Nathanael though. In my opinion, I prefer Nathanael to Nathanial because Nathanael looks more natural to me and more strong.
