I learned that from the pizza man.

Can we take a moment to appreciate the fandom and how we somehow make it to every corner of the Internet. I begin to wonder if we've taken this show too far.

Nah. This website is literally just fandom bait.

Meanings and history of the name Castiel: | Edit

Castiel, often shortened to Cass, is a powerful angel of the Lord who was responsible for saving Dean Winchester from Hell, on the archangels' command. It was his job to help prevent Lilith from breaking the 66 Seals that, once broken, would release Lucifer from his cage in Hell. Once Castiel learned that the angels wished to free Lucifer anyway, he defied his angelic brethren and died trying to help Dean prevent Sam Winchester from breaking the last seal.

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.
