I'm more looking for an angelic or heavenly sort of name... because he just looks that way to me. Sorry I'm being difficult, lol. :P

Castiel is still appealing to me, though... as it sounds angelic and heavenly to me. xD

I love the name Castiel, and I love the picture of him with his tail fin curved around and partially covering his face, just beautiful.

Hope I am doing this right but here's a picture of my Ghost from 3 weeks ago. He has grown a bit since. he's supposed to be halfmoon but his tail fin spread just doesn't make that 180 degrees.
He is so very pretty in his whiteness and hopefully his tailfin will grow a bit more.
If you look at his bottom fin you'll see where it was split it's almost completely healed now.....Lynne

Castiel may just be an angels name as it's used by a character in the TV series Supernatural and he is an angel.....Going to google the name just to find out the origins of it....Lynne

Gabriel and Michael are both important angels in the Christian faith, and are described as wearing white, shining robes.

Okay did a bit of digging. Catiel is the Angel of Thursday of changes and travel. Helps those born on Thursday. He is also one of the angels of Jupiter, one of six angels.

Castiel means My cover is God. Very interesting as this plays into what happens this season on "Supernatural" as Castiel becomes God. Love this program. Jensen Ackles is so dreamy looking as Dean and the guy who plays Sam isn't hard to look at either....Lynn

@Teasell, Ghost is very beautiful! My guess is that after you've had him a while his tailfin will grow out and be more like a halfmoon's.
I didn't thoroughly watch the Supernatural series, but that might've been where I remember it from, too.

@freeflow, Now the name Gabriel is appealing to me... I didn't know that as I'm Buddhist (though admittedly not completely religious, and I do respect all religions) but it's making it a bit harder to choose a name now. :D

Edited to resp. to new post: @TeasellHehe... I know quite a few girls who'd fall over Dean more than Sam. I'm more partial to my fiance, myself. lol
Interesting find, and thanks for sharing that. :)

Oh yea, I totally get it if you don't want to name him after a religion you don't agree with lol. XD

Freeflow, lol no. It's not that I don't agree with other religions... I mean, I'm not going to boycott the name because it's a name from the Christian faith. xD
My opinion on that: as long as you believe in it and it's true to you, I'll respect it as well as I can. I'm always pretty willing to learn about religions, too.... I'm something of a world culture nut and curiosity about everything gets the better of me.
