A lead on a last name

Sitting here in Chicago, I get this email from my bro, red_sput, regarding our last name:

Following is an excerpt from :
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Dangler


Dan´gler

n. 1. One who dangles about or after others, especially after women; a trifler.
No, it can't be that. No way. No one here would ever think that this is the derivation of my name, right?

There's been a lot of speculation regarding what our last name actually means. I think my bro may have just hit the nail on the head, at least with me *grins*

The more I think about it, the more my name is the perfect, most descriptive name ever. I have what is quite possibly one of the top five most powerful names for a ceremonial magician to take when working with angels, demons, and assorted other spirits (Michael, "he who is like god" and leader of the Host), and now my last name appears to mean something that many people might perceive as a primary descriptor of my actions on this realm.

For such a run of the mill name, I have a freakin' good one.

And there's no excuse for me to ever choose a "magical name", thank you very much. . .
