Reuel or Raguel (Hebrew: רְעוּאֵל, Modern Re'u'el Tiberian Rəʻûʼēl ; "Friend of El") meaning "friend of God" or "one who is intimate with God",[1] is a Hebrew name associated with several Biblical and/or religious figures.

Biblical persons with this name are:

  • Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, who also went by the name "Reuel" (Exodus 2:18; Numbers 10:29). It has been suggested that Reuel was his proper name, and "Jether" or "Jethro" was his official title (i.e., "excellency").
