Is this true in regards to naming children after the Malaaika ?
‘Do not name on the names of the angels.’
(Shu’ab-ul-Iman, hadith 8636)
Yes, it is a prohibition of preference, indirectly confirmed by another hadith stating that best names are Abdulrahman and similar names with Abd in them, or names of Prophets, for males, and for females noble names like the Mothers of the believers and other names with good meanings.
