"el" means god. The prefixes all mean different things.
They can be interpreted a bit differently, but I would guess:
Gabriel - was overcome by god
Daniel - was judged by god
Michael - who is as god?
Ariel - lion of god
Raphael - healed by god
Uriel - light of god
This whole set of names contains some of my favorite names, for girls as
well as boys (Gabriela or Gabrielle for a girl - though it's increasingly
fashionable just to treat the names as unisex...)
