Azazel has quite a charming ring to it with its lyrical tones and synonyms. The meaning of the name and it's history, if you aren't aware, might surprise you a little. Azazel literally means “scapegoat” in Hebrew. And according to the Old Testament it was the name of a sacrificial

offering. To add more heat to the darkness of this name, there are further references to Azazel being a fallen angel.

I have heard of parents using this name but I'm unsure if they realise the connection it has with the dark world of demons and sacrifices. Nevertheless, I don't know about you, but it wouldn't put me off using the name. The name has a certain sound to it with its double Z and lyrical L ending. It is intriguing and beautiful and afterall, a person makes their name what they want it to be.
