It occurred to me that others might be interested in this as well as myself, so I thought I'd make a post about it, and will probably link it in the libraries for future pregnancies/kiddos!
Both of my kids, in case anyone hadn't noticed, have angel names and there are lots out there if you wanted to name a baby (or furbaby for that matter) something angelic.

Naming after (Arch?)angel Daniel* - angel of marriage
Meaning: GOD IS MY JUDGE

* In anything I have read, he is mentioned as an angel, not an archangel, but as he holds one particular vibration I am starting to question this.
Other Archangels, though these are not traditionally used as names, include:
Azrael (Comfort) - WHOM GOD HELPS
Chamuel (Unconditional love) - LOVE OF GOD OR HE/SHE WHO SEEKS GOD
Jophiel (Joy) - BEAUTY OF GOD
Haniel (Romantic love) - GRACE OF GOD
Sandalphon (creativity) - SECRETS OF GOD
Metatron (ascension) - GUIDING LIGHT
Zadkiel (transformation) - JUSTICE OF GOD
Raziel (alchemy) - PRINCE OF KNOWLEDGE
Raguel (harmony) - FRIEND OF GOD
Zaphael (divine connection) - GOD'S PRAYER
Cassiel (time and space) - SPEED OF GOD
There are also other angels. Generally, any name ending -el and any "virtue" name is an angel name, but there are others as well. You may know the name of your guardian angel, and use that. You could also look through Doreen Virtue's angel cards for inspirations - many names are included, some of those that spring to mind are Francesca, Omega, Caressa, Fiona and Grace.
Naming after Angels in general
Meaning: MESSENGER OF GOD
Angel, Angela, Angelo, Angelique, Angelica, Evangeline, Elle, Ella, Ellie
There are also Archaeia names (female counterparts of certain Archangels) - Victoria (Archangel Michael), Charity (Archangel Chamuel/Love), Hope (Archangel Gabriel/destiny), Mary or Maria (Archangel Raphael/Healing).
NB. Some of these names also have their own particular/separate meanings, so it would be wise to look them up and make sure you like any other associated meanings as well.
