***Those Angels' names are referenced from the "Dead Sea Scroll". It is a scroll which discovered near Dead Sea in Isreal during 1947 (it is where its name come from). It was wrote in about 200 A.D.. In the past, this scroll was kept by the pope and nobody can touch or read it except the pope. They kept it secretly because it talks about the things that will happen after 2000 A.D.. In about 1990 (I do not sure the year!!), the pope think that it is time to let people know the truth, so that he showed the scroll to the public. If you want to know more about "Dead Sea Scroll" you can go to HERE in english version or if you can read Chinese, you can go to this interesting site HERE in chinese GB (this chinese site is not related to "Dead Sea Scroll", it just talks about prophecies). Neon Genesis Evangelion does not only referenced from "Dead Sea Scroll", many features in Evangelion are referenced from the Holy Bible. For example, the name "Longinus" spear (which sticked on Lillith) is the name of the Roman soldier who pierced the heart of Jusus on the cross to confirm Jusus' death.
