Hebrew Spelling of Angels' Names? (Hebrew-Romaji inconsistencies)

Hi. I was wondering: The Angels Sachiel, Zeruel, and Ireul: Their Hebrew names given in their wiki articles don't match their Romaji names.

Sachiel's Hebrew name is זכיאל. So, it should be pronounced Zachiel.
Zeruel's is זוריאל. So, it should be pronounced Zuriel.
Ireul's is ירואל. So, it should be pronounced Yeruel.

Of course, these Anglicizations all match the Katakana equivalents. Here's my question: Where is the source for the Hebrew spellings of the Angel's names? Does anyone know? (I've seen sources for the English spellings on Google, but I haven't been able to find sources for the Hebrew.)

(Some of the articles (e.g., Ramiel's) mention ספר החנוך as a source, but I can't find where in the book these angels' names are listed. It's weird.)

(I may cross-post on reddit, as well.)

They were probably added by Zugzwang, an occultist expert who is no longer with us. I would suggest simply removing them, since they have no relevance to NGE's angels. Or at best, restricting any mention to a blurb that discusses the inspiration for the Angel's name and sometimes attributes.

Interesting choice of words, there. Well, ok. I guess I'll see if anyone can give a source here or on reddit, and if not, out they go. Thanks!
