  • "My son's name is Angel. It is a very popular name for boys in latino cultures (say: on-hel). I love it, everyone asks if he's an angel and he is, he's sweet and caring, but mischievous, so I suspect when he gets older that could change, as I've never met a grown man named Angel who was "good"... always cute though. We've met a few boy Angels, the name seems to be gaining popularity, there were at least 3 in our little league this year." Sep. 16, 2008: Report as inappropriate

I had never heard of a guy being named Angel before, and people always think that I'm talking about a girl when I talk about him.
