Most angel names end in the suffix -el, which in Hebrew means "God." Is JeIIyfish an angel? Just cut out "-Iyfish". What's left is "J-el". Now that's an angelic name. Proxima Centauri 10:35, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

The theory is sound, :nods:
Wait a second! You're talking about Littlefish! This changes everything! <blink></blink> 10:40, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
And a new user Kal-El has just appeared. Another angel? Proxima Centauri 11:16, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
I think that's a character from Superman :) I could sign up as "Tabris" if you want. <blink></blink> 11:20, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
My old username lol. Not the only fan Neon Genesis Evangelion here. Speaking of NGE, I was thinking we could do a gallery of different "angels". We could put up the monsters from NGE, that guy from Buffy, the bondage angel from Persona etc. There are so many variants.--Thanatos 02:56, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

The term comes from the Greek - messenger. 212.85.6.26 (talk) 19:17, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Fairies and Jinn[edit]

are these really similar ? Angels being constructed servants , while the Fae and Djinn were not. Hamster (talk) 05:13, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Yezidi[edit]

'An obscure splinter the Yezidi...' sounds odd. 82.44.143.26 (talk) 15:35, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Angel of Mons[edit]

Should there be a mention of this construct? 82.44.143.26 (talk) 15:08, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

RW on Wikipedia's helpdesk[edit]

About Moses wrestling an angel. You won't find it in the article text, though - it has been fixed by a BoN. RW's lack of a proper Recent changes patrol sometimes has its upsides...--ZooGuard (talk) 09:46, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

references[edit]

This page is a little light on references. I would put some in but I'm feeling lazy. So just saying. --Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 13:29, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

Oh look, linkspammish comment without any explanations of why anyone should waste their time with this poor clickbait - yaaaaaawn... ScepticWombat (talk) 15:40, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
Please read this. You will find: "When you wish to make an argument then you should present it in your own words. If you simply post a link to another website or blogpost saying the answer can be found there you will probably not be taken seriously. ... Remember - make the point yourself."--Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 17:04, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Sizes[edit]

Does someone know if there's any mention in the Bible about how tall are angels or telling they're three times as tall as a human is another PIDOOMA of the usual suspects?. --Panzerfaust (talk) 00:25, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

Angel worship[edit]

Actually, Eastern Orthodox Church has plenty of angel worshipveneration, similar so saints (well, whole distinction between these two is muddy, if existent at all, when it comes down to rituals) with the same "I swear, that's not the case!" justification. Simply don't know a thing about Catholicism in this regard, so cannot say a thing.
