Is this still a male given name, or was it only used as a male name in Biblical times? Shouldn't there be a link to Gabrielle? --Connel MacKenzie 21:24, 29 May 2005 (UTC)

There are 2,780 adults with the surname in England and Wales now. In the 1901 English census there were 1,073 people with the given name. SemperBlotto 21:47, 29 May 2005 (UTC)

Certainly this is still a male given name. I have several friends with the name. It may be more common in Romance language cultures. RSvK 23:02, 29 May 2005 (UTC)

Angel senses[edit]

Should the angel senses be combined? Aren't they referring to the same angel, who is merely associated with different things in different Abrahamic faiths? - -sche (discuss) 10:31, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

Merged. Compare WT:TR#Gog, where the comments implicitly go along with the idea that the Jewish, Christian and Islamic uses of "Gog" are uses of one sense, not 2 or 3. - -sche (discuss) 03:03, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
