Etymology of the name GABRIEL.
Meaning of the baby name GABRIEL.

  

GABRIEL.  Biblical.  [Heb. Gabhriel = "man of God" "hero of god."  In the Cabalistic system, Gabriel is the archangel who presides over the moon.  Usage: America, Czech Republic, England, Germany, Hungary (Gábriel), Illyria. 

    An angel of high rank sent to interpret a vision to the prophet Daniel (Dan. viii. 16-27).  He was commissioned again to visit the prophet to give him "skill and understanding," and reveal to him the prophecy of "the seventy weeks" (ix. 16-27).  At a long subsequent period he was despatched to Jerusalem to intimate to Zacharias the approaching birth of John the Baptist (Luke i. 11-22), and then to Nazareth to hail the Virgin Mary as chosen to the high privilege of giving birth to Jesus (26-31).  Gabriel described himself as habitually standing in the presence of God (19).  Thence, doubtless, he departed at longer or shorter intervals to carry the Divine messages to and from this earth or other worlds. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
