Reuel or Raguel (Hebrew: רְעוּאֵל, Modern Rəʻuʼel Tiberian Rəʻûʼēl ; "Friend of El") is a Hebrew name associated with several Biblical and/or religious figures.

Biblical persons with this name are:

  • Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, who also went by the name "Reuel" (Exodus 2:18; Numbers 10:29). It has been suggested that Reuel was his proper name, and "Jether" or "Jethro" was his official title (i.e., "excellency").
  • A Gadite (Numbers 2:14), called also Deuel (Hebrew: דְּעוּאֵל, Modern Dəʻuʼel Tiberian Dəʻûʼēl) (1:14; 7:42); the father of the Gadite prince Eliasaph.
  • Father-in-law of Tobias (Tobit 7:1,15)
