    Name Meaning

    Biblical name (meaning ‘man of God’ in Hebrew), borne by one of the archangels. Gabriel appeared to Daniel in the Old Testament (Daniel 8:16; 9:21), and in the New Testament to Zacharias (Luke 1:19; 26:27) and, most famously, to Mary to announce the impending birth of Christ (Luke 1:2). Used only infrequently in the 20th century, Gabriel has recently found favour as a given name in the English-speaking world, and is now sometimes bestowed on girls.
