BIBLICAL NAMES

I had an epiphany recently after going through several of the anime and manga I have experienced. Some of the monsters and villains are given Biblical names that would normally be considered benevolent. For example, in Neon Genesis Evangelion there were Kaiju-sized monsters that were called Angels. In Berserk there were unholy demons that were called Apostles. In One Punch Man, possibly the most powerful and dangerous villains were called Gods. Even though these creatures were given benevolent names, there was nothing beautiful or benevolent about them. I am thinking of going a similar route in my new superhero series since I am giving it an anime feel.
