Angelica is Latin & it means angelic.

Ramirez is Spanish. It is derived from a Germanic first name comprising the components "ragin" & "meri", meaning counsel & fame. It also means son of Ramiro, & is derived from the name Ramon, (which is the Spanish form of the name Raymond).

Fulton is Scottish. It is derived from the name of the Scottish town Fulton, meaning "fowl enclosure" in which the original bearer was a resident.

I was also told that the language spoken in ireland at that time was an old language called "Gaelich", Im not sure if thats spelled right but only a few even speak it at all anymore in Ireland. I was told It may be a clan or town name. I dont have an email address so ill post any new info hat I get.

Telamaco, Telemaco, Telemacho
I think these all exist in Greece.
Telemachus was the son of Odysseus and Penelope.

I have been told that our name is an old Irish name that started about 900 years ago. I was shown the coat of arms, but cant recall exactly what it was. Somthing like two lions opposing each other. My great great grandfather had a claymore sword with it from before 1701 when my family came from Ireland in 1701. Im srry if I cant remember the exact origin, but I know that mine left because of religouse oppression and the potato famine.
