Names of Male Angels
You will find more names of male angels as opposed to names of female angels. Why so? Are all angels male? Unfortunately I don’t have a definitive answer to this question.
Some people believe that angels have no gender. And yet others think they are androgynous.
In Judaism and Christianity, angels are described as male. Experts believe that since Christian and Jewish traditions are patriarchal, angels are referred to as being male. As an example, in Jewish and Christian texts the archangel Michael is described as a male angel.
But aside from this interesting detail, you will find several names of angels and archangels in different traditions. The list presented below is just a small sample.
Some of the names listed here are variants of better-known names. For example, Yophiel is a variation of Jophiel, the name of an archangel in Jewish and Christian traditions.
