What do you think, for a girl??

seeker Tue 12-Feb-13 16:25:31

Nope.

IslaValargeone Tue 12-Feb-13 16:26:07

I think not.

LadyMargolotta Tue 12-Feb-13 16:26:41

You've forgotton the 'a' at the end.

I don't like it. I like Angelica though.

badtime Tue 12-Feb-13 16:28:15

I would put it in the same group of names as Nevaeh or Princess.

That is not a good thing.

(It is fine for a boy with a Spanish/Latino background)

sooperdooper Tue 12-Feb-13 16:44:57

No, I wouldn't, there's something about this kind of name that's quite demeaning

I agree Angelica could be a good compromise tho, and then it could be a nn if you wanted

ladymia Tue 12-Feb-13 16:53:30

Really dislike it

FooffyShmoo Tue 12-Feb-13 16:56:11

One of my DDs best friends is called Angel.

Saying that, no, not keen.

keely79 Tue 12-Feb-13 17:00:59

Nope. I apply the High Court Judge test - could you imagine your daughter being a high court judge (or the prime minister, or something equally important) with that name.

Angel fails for me on that one.

TennisFan42 Tue 12-Feb-13 17:25:31

Horrible

IslaValargeone Tue 12-Feb-13 17:30:12

Conversely you could do the dancer at Spearmint Rhino test..

Angel is a boys name IMO.

ZenNudist Tue 12-Feb-13 17:33:08

Terrible name.

Anyone remember a character on home & away called Angel? Played by Melissa George before she got famous. blush

GetOrf Tue 12-Feb-13 17:35:21

I always think of' it as a boy's name, based on Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Jilly Cooper's Polo. grin

No, anyway.

Rhubarbgarden Tue 12-Feb-13 17:35:52

Terrible.

gillian88 Tue 12-Feb-13 17:37:10

I'm afraid I don't like it either!

BabyRoger Tue 12-Feb-13 17:39:38

Not keen but angelica is lovely.

What badtime said.

MrsApplepants Tue 12-Feb-13 20:05:41

No it's a boy's name. And also a stripper's name. Sorry.

Snusmumriken Tue 12-Feb-13 20:10:26

It would be a great name for a male vampire.

Snusmumriken Tue 12-Feb-13 20:11:24

A buffy the vampire slayer ref.....for those out of the loop.

CPtart Tue 12-Feb-13 20:17:24

Sluttish!

LynetteScavo Tue 12-Feb-13 20:17:40

I know some middle class hippies who called their DD Angel. They pronounce it with a French accent. I am not making this up.

Sashapineapple Tue 12-Feb-13 20:24:28

No. I think it sounds a bit cheap and chavvy in English. It does sound nice as a Spanish boys name.

iheartmycat Wed 13-Feb-13 17:27:57

Angelina. ... I knew a lovely girl with Italian parents called this! (Unhelpful!)

LynetteScavo Wed 13-Feb-13 17:47:31

I love Angeli....DD was at nursery with a lovely little Anglei. Not sure of it's origin, though.

meditrina Wed 13-Feb-13 18:00:21

It's a predominantly boys name, an I wouldn't choose it for a girl.

trixymalixy Wed 13-Feb-13 18:02:05

My uncle had American neighbours called Randy and Sindy. Their DD was called Angel, she was anything but!!

meditrina Wed 13-Feb-13 18:03:44

This Angel is very handsome.

DoctorAnge Wed 13-Feb-13 18:38:49

I think of a Hispanic man when I hear this.

Bunbaker Wed 13-Feb-13 18:51:20

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Tess of the d'Urbevilles
Boy's name
For a girl - no way

Angela
Angelica
Angelina are all OK, but not Angel. As bad as Princess, or if you are superstitious, a child who is no more.

I prefer Angela!
