Characteristics of Dangelo
Etymology & Historical Origin - Dangelo
D’Angelo (which is how this name is typically rendered – with an apostrophe) is an African-American name creation. The name essentially means “of the angels” from the d’ prefix (de meaning “of”) plus Angelo, the Italian masculine name for “angel”. Angelo comes from the Medieval Latin “Angelus” which stood for a heavenly creature – an angel – itself originating from the Greek word αγγελος (angelos) meaning "messenger" (since the biblical angels were considered “messengers” of God). Obviously a popular figure in Christianity, the angel gave birth to several variations of its name. The Spanish use Ángel, the Greeks use Angelos, the Czechs use Anděl and in the Basque country they say Aingeru. African-Americans put their own unique stamp on this little cherub, too. D’Angelo and DeAngelo.
Popularity of the Name Dangelo
D’Angelo first appeared on the American male naming charts in 1985 (although DeAngelo predates him by a decade). One of the many naming styles that emerged within the African-American community in the 1970s were these types of creative variations on common names. At first, D’Angelo resided at the bottom of the Top 1000 list and then disappeared from circulation. The name came screaming back on to the charts in the mid-1990s thanks to a popular R&B musician named Michael Eugene Archer who went by the stage name D’Angelo. D’Angelo’s impact on the usage of his name would last for a few years, but today the name has dwindled back down to low levels of popularity. In fact, D’Angelo is coming dangerously close to falling off the Top 1000 list any year now. Even D'Angelo Barksdale, a character on the HBO drama series “The Wire” (2002-2008), did little to resurrect the usage of this name.
