ぱㄏ or 礨ㄠ


Explanation:
The first answer has the phonetic signs of "tian shi (or tian shih)." The two characters literally mean "sky or heaven" and "ambassador, envoy or messenger"

The second answer is a transliteration of the sounds of the word "angel." The term has three characters which sound like this: "an-qi-er." Usually the sound correspondence is more important than the meaning of the Chinese words. However, here the Chinese words chosen do bear some salutary meaning. An  means "peace, safe. stability, calm, consolation, etc." Qi (or Chi) 礨 is a jade or gem. Er ㄠ means children, child, son or daughter. So, you can see that the second term is as popular and used almost as often as the first one.
