WOULD you name your baby something devil-related?

ABC Everyday reported that parents are giving their children more unique names lately as a way of giving them individuality and self-expression.

As reported by Statista, there are roughly 3.75 million babies born in the US each year, so it can be difficult to find a name that isn't overly used.

These unique baby names have been rising in popularity across the US in hopes of making their little one stand out.

According to the recent (2021) US popularity list from SSA, the names Azriel and Azrael represent "the Angel of Death in Abrahamic religions."
