Etymology[edit]

From Old Spanish angel, borrowed from Late Latin angelus (messenger, angel), or alternatively perhaps an early borrowing from Old Occitan (compare Catalan àngel, Occitan àngel) or a Gallo-Romance language, explaining the lack of a final -o; a variant dialectal form ángelo is attested, however.[1] The Latin word itself derives from Ancient Greek ἄγγελος (ángelos, messenger, envoy, angel). Compare cognate Ladino andjel and the inherited Portuguese anjo.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈanxel/, [ˈãŋxel]
