According to babynamewizard.com, (LMAO, I KNOW) the name Castiel means "My cover is God".

"He is the Angel of Thursday, of changes and of travel. He will help anyone born on a Thursday. He is also a angel of Jupiter. He is one of six Angels."

Hey, maybe the writer's chose the name based on the fact that Supernatural aired on Thursdays? (And apparently the name is German in origin!)

Thar ya go.

Actually, we had quite the conversation on this back when Castiel first appeared on the show. In fact, we all discovered that there IS NO angel named Castiel listed.......well, anywhere, lol. the closest any of us was ever able to find was "Cassiel".

We were giving away business cards for a while. Kind of a "how to keep an idiot busy" type of thing because that's exactly what it felt like looking for information on "Castiel" on the internet. It went kind of like this:

ME TO GOOGLE: "Who is Castiel"
GOOGLE ANSWER: An angel of Thursday

ME TO GOOGLE: "What is an angel of Thursday"
GOOGLE ANSWER: Castiel

It didn't matter how you phrased it (believe me, I got pretty creative, lol), you still came up with the same answers. It reminded me of the little cards I'd come across as a kid (usually handed to me by an adult, lol) that said "how do you keep an idiot busy (answer on other side)" on both sides of the card!

With regard to the lack of info on Castiel when he first showed up on SN, we pretty much accused the SN writers and The Kripke of scrubbing the internet of any and all useful information so that they could create him as they liked.

Lmao! XD Yeah, dug a little deeper and tested that out myself after reading this.

I know 'el' means 'of god'. And I'm not sure if 'Casti' actually mean 'cover'. You think they'd try to hide a hidden message in the meaning of his name? Cover of God... hmm.

If you look up the name of Cassiel, it's mentioned several times in "the key of Soloman". He is listed as an angel, under the arch-angel,Tzaphquiel, for the day of Sarurday. His color is black, lead is his metal, and is under the planet Saturn, for Saturday.
"the key of Soloman" and "the lesser key of Soloman" are the oldest books that I know of that mention all the angels of heaven and hell.

Castiel is an angle from the forgotten text. Long ago certian people thought some of the chapters in the bible did not need to be there so they took it out. It's now in the libery of the Vatican. 7  out of 8 found this valuable. Do you?

Wait it says 'my cover is God?' that makes me come to the unbelievable conclusion that Castiel is actually God.
But as I said it's unbelievable, so I don't believe it naturally ;D

As we all know Castiel is ''the new God'' as of s6e22 so ''cover of God'' is shown as works as a god or ''covering for God 3  out of 4 found this valuable. Do you?

Due to book writing and really bad writers block I was looking up names and their meanings, i came across the name Cassiel which was said to be the Angel of Saturn. But no matter how many times I looked for the meaning of Castiels name, I never got anything. Cassiel was the closest I got. 0  out of 3 found this valuable. Do you?

Heres something about the name Castiel. It doesn't have anything to do with angels or the actual origin, more the personality type.

Yeah, I know this question is old.

If you look at all the other angels, their names all end in "el." The translation means God or of God. As far as I know, "casti" is a Latin adjective for pure, so Castiel's name probably means something about how he is holy.
