Etymology & Historical Origin - Angelina

Angelina is a fanciful version of the more common name Angela. Both names are derived from the Latin male name Angelus which comes from the Greek “angelos” (meaning ‘messenger’). Angelina is also probably an elaboration of the feminine form of the Latin adjective “angelicus” which translates to ‘angelic.’ The full meaning of the name – i.e., “messenger of God” was derived from the Bible. Angelina is primarily the English version of the name. The French form of the name is Angeline or Angélique. All of the “Angela” names became popularized in the 18th century.

Popularity of the Name Angelina

Angelina has been actively bestowed as a female given name in America for well over a century; however, the name experienced only moderate success until the turn of the 21st century. Angelina lands a spot on the Top 100 list in 2001 for the first time. In fact, the name jumped 200 spots on the charts in four short years (from 1999-2002). These are the very years that Angelina Jolie came into the public eye, after winning her Academy Award in 2000 for “Girl Interrupted.” It seems clear that popular culture has influenced the currency of the name. Nonetheless, Angelina is a beautiful four-syllable name that sounds poetic and feminine.
