Raphael, Uriel...
Not that I know. It has to to with the meanings of the names, hasn't it?
I used to know the significances of the archangels' names... Help?

And while I'm at it, does anybody know why angels are called "thrones
and dominations"? I know a song from church where they are mentioned
(Throne und Herrschaften) as well.

Another bit: there are pictures in churches of seraphim (or was that
cherubim?) where they have six wings, that hide their body (or maybe
they haven't got one?)

who wanted Liriel in her email adress, but it was already taken. Well,
LiriL is a palindrome (reads the same backwards), and as I gather an
indian soap :-)
