- Meanings and history of the name Castiel: | Edit
If Castiel's name was taken from Cassiel (or Kafziel) then his name roughly translates to "my cover is God" or "Shield of God." He's not actually the angel of Thursday, although in Enochian magic and Kabala mysticism, certain angels are given domain over different hours of each day of the week. Cassiel does have domain over some of the hours in Thursday, but he's also an angel of every other day of the week.
Cassiel is the angel of temperance, which definitely fits with Castiel's personality.
