Danita Angell (born March 26, 1986, Aries) is an American model from Oregon who appeared in the 2000 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
Danita is 5'10" and has blonde hair and green eyes (which are often colored blue in advertisements and promo shots because, well...).
"Danita" is a variant of the name Danna, which in turn derives from Daniel, meaning "God is my judge" in Hebrew. It also has the same meaning in English and Spanish. It was a popular girl's name in the 1960s.
