Ananiel, Anânêl (Aramaic: עננאל, Greek: Ανανθνά) was the 14th Watcher of the 20 leaders of the 200 fallen angels who are mentioned in an ancient work titled the Book of Enoch. The name Ananiel is sometimes translated as "Rain of God" even though the name is often confused with the name Hananiel. Michael Knibb[1] interprets his name to be "cloud of god".
