Archangel names are filled with mystical attributes and celestial power. After all, they are the names of powerful divine beings.
It is unclear how many archangels there are. The Bible names only a couple - Michael and Gabriel, even though only Michael is explicitly called an archangel.
Some traditions believe that there are seven archangels who oversee the cosmos.
You will find other archangel and angel names in different places:
Some apocryphal and non-canonical texts (the Book of Enoch and the Book of Tobit to be precise) mention Uriel and Raphael, among others.
Islam recognizes Azrael as an archangel.
In addition, literature and other sources mention the names of other archangels.
