This is my cousin's middle-name! I think it has a strong meaning and sounds unique.

Uriel is one of the four archangels along with Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael.

Uriel isn't an archangel according to the Roman Catholic Church, only Gabriel, Michael, and Raphael are. Still, I consider him an archangel as many others do. (I'm not Catholic nor do I let them tell me what to think.) He's my guardian angel, maybe yours too if you're a Libra. Anyway, he's the "eyes of God" and is the angel of wisdom and the arts.

This isn't exactly a famous bearer, but in the book A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle, a planet is called Uriel.

Still used as a surname in Spain and those in Spanish-speaking countries descended from them or who adopted the name.

I didn't understand the part about only in the apocrypha, that applies to the archangel part, but not to the name itself, which IS in the Bible (KJV):

1 Chronicles 15:5
5 Of the sons of Kohath; Uriel the chief, and his brethren an hundred and twenty:

1 Chronicles 6:24
24 Tahath his son, Uriel his son, Uzziah his son, and Shaul his son.

1 Chronicles 15:11
11 And David called for Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and for the Levites, for Uriel, Asaiah, and Joel, Shemaiah, and Eliel, and Amminadab,

2 Chronicles 13:2
2 He reigned three years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Michaiah the daughter of Uriel of Gibeah. And there was war between Abijah and Jeroboam.

Can be used as a feminine name in American English, cp. ARIEL, MURIEL.

A good twin name for ARIEL.

Biblical names are usually beautiful, but it's fantastic. Maybe because it's still unique (like Nehemiah, Elisha or Mara).
