Verstegan quaintly says that Egbert was "chiefly moved" to call his kingdom England "in respect of Pope Gregory changing the name of Engelisce into Angellyke," and this "may have moved our kings upon their best gold 
coins to set the image of an angel." *


". . . Shake the bags
 Of hoarding abbots; their imprisoned angels
 Set them at liberty."
  Shakespeare,
   King John, iii. 3.
