فقد روى البخاري في التاريخ الكبير أن رجلاً قال: يا رسول الله، ولد لي مولود فما أخير الأسماء؟ قال: إن خير أسمائكم الحارث وهمام، ونعم الاسم عبد الله وعبد الرحمن، وسموا بأسماء الأنبياء، ولا تسموا بأسماء الملائكة. قال: وباسمك؟ قال: وباسمي، ولا تكنوا بكنيتي. قال البخاري: وفي إسناده نظر.

I hve not found a translation so this is my translation (a man went to the messenger of allah and sais I have born a child so what is the best names? he said the best of your names are al hareth and hamam and the most blessed names are abd allah and abd alrhmanand name after your prophets and do not name after the angels so the man said and after your name , so he said and after my name but don't be nicknames or(surnamed or translator...) after my nickname)recited by al bukhary

this hadith is weak (its reference is not strong or very trusted) but a lot of scholars say that by doing this you are imitating al mushrekeen المشركيين for they said angles are god's daughters but since the hadith is weak and to be sure it is hatted to do that but not haram and congratulations for you and may he and all the muslim children be always happy and in health her is my present to him

no you CAN name them after angels since there has been no proof that it is haram and since your intention is not to imitate mushrik but it is hated which means it is not preferable but if you want go ahead nothing is wrong but it is from the child's right to choose a good name for him that will not be a reason for any kind of agony in his life like calling a son dog or whatever jut choose a good name
