Angelina – Scary Mommy

Angelina

With variations that include Angela, Angeline, and Angelica, this name has roots in Latin, Italian, English, Russian, German, Dutch, Polish, Spanish, and Greek. It means “messenger” or “angel,” so maybe your little Angelina will behave angelically while you drag her through the grocery store. She probably won’t, but you can still hold out a little hope.

Angie, Angel.

Famous people named Angelina:

Actress, filmmaker, and humanitarian Angelina Jolie; Angelina Grimke, American abolitionist and suffragist; Angelina Pivarnick of Jersey Shore.

Fun fact:

If you were team Brad and Jen, you may still harbor bitterness about Brangelina. That’s all water under the bridge now, though, so it’s probably time to let Angelina return to its “angelic” meaning in our hearts.
