"this name is the greatest of all. whos name literally means their name." Jan. 29, 2021:
"I'm surprised that so many people have the same problem of people spelling Angel as Angle.I thought that just happened because I live in a country where a lot of people don't speak English much. But I like my name. I used to get teased for it a lot, and I sometimes still do, but the meaning of it sometimes strikes me and well...I like how ironic it is for me. I just wish it was more uncommon here. There are two other people in my school with the same name AND surname as mine. The only difference is our middle names. What are the odds?" May. 26, 2020:

"My name is angel and I deal pretty well. The only time I have a real problem with in is when people ask if my real name is angelica or something like that. Everyone who tries to spell my name usually spells in Angle which is a pain. IN school every time there was a sub they would look at the side of the class with the most boys cause they didn't think it was possible to have a blonde petite girl with angel as a name and it probably doesn't help my last name could be Spanish. Those are the only problems ive had with it" Dec. 24, 2015:
"Angel is a really pretty name but Angelina is better, in my opinion." Jun. 18, 2008:
"My name is Angel. I was named after my great grandmother Angeline. I wish my parents had named me Angeline instead and called me Angel as a nickname. While I love my name, it is difficult, as an adult and in the corporate world, to have a name commonly used as a term of endearment. I would have rather had an option. I, also, am always called Angela or Angie by people who do not know me well. I am always having to correct people. I agree with the other post that people need to learn how to correctly spell Angel. I have also been the victim of "Angle"." Feb. 19, 2008:
