    Salam Everyone,
    I am expecting a baby girl very soon.My husband wants to name her ‘ Angelina’ .My question is ,can it be name for Muslim?Or does it have any contradiction with the muslim naming etiquette ?

    Angelina comes from Angela, which is from New Testament Greek angelos, which means “messenger” in classical Greek, but in Christianity the word was adopted for “messenger from God”, meaning “angel” in the modern speech.

    Thus Angelina means “angel” or “angel-like”. The meaning of “angel” is not recommended for use by scholars, please see this answer for the reasoning behind this.

    It is not forbidden, just not recommended.
