uriel M

hebrew
'ÔRÂH > 'ÛRı̂Y'ÊL > URIY'EL

This name derives from the Hebrew “'ôrâh > 'ûrı̂y'êl > Uriy'el”, meaning “Jehovah (Yahweh) is my light (flame)”. Uriel is one of the archangels of post-Exilic Rabbinic tradition, and also of certain Christian traditions. His name may have analogies. Where a fourth archangel is added to the named three, to represent the four cardinal points, Uriel is generally the fourth. Uriel is listed as the fourth angel in Christian Gnostics (under the name Phanuel), by Gregory the Great, and in the angelology of Pseudo-Dionysius. However, the Book of Enoch clearly distinguishes the two Angels; Uriel means 'the Light of God' while Phanuel means "the Face of God."
