Can we know the name of our guardian angel?

Yes, should the guardian angel choose to reveal it by private revelation. However, it is not necessary to know for certain our guardian angel’s name in order to pray to him. One could simply address him as “Guardian.” Or, if it would help a person to form a more intimate relationship with the guardian angel, it is also fine to give the guardian angel a name of one’s own choosing.
