Meaning: Messenger of God

It’s totally difficult to figure out how this name entered the public conscious...nah, we’re just kidding. Ms. Jolie has pretty much single-handedly brought this name back into the public conscious. (With a little help from a small mouse ballerina.) It’s not just the actress that’s helping this name rise on the charts though -- it’s a great alternative to the stale Angela and the overly frilly Angelica and strikes the same vibe as today’s popular feminine, slightly romantic but definitely not fussy names. (And, the superstar does help add a little edge to the name.) While it’s dropping from its ’05 peak of 43, we expect Angelina to remain in the top 100 for a good while.
