Cherub is from karubu, an old Persian word, meaning “Angel." In medieval Catholic theology the Cherubim are one of the highest ranks in the hierarchy of angels, along with Seraphim. In popular Christian tradition, "cherub" and "cherubim" have become synonyms of "angel(s)" and especially with "baby angel(s).” Here the cherubs front a stylized cross.
