Found a reference in R. A. Gilbert's Hermetic Papers of A. E. Waite, Ch. 11, "The Symbol of the Rosy Cross." Presumably it's a record of a lecture given by Waite to the Independent and Rectified Rite of the GD, Gilbert doesn't say.
"In like manner, the Zohar recognises an identical middle point from which the four quarters of heaven are equidistant, and that point is the Rose of its own system—that is to say, the Rose of Shekinah. This indwelling spirit of Kabalism has many names, several of which are familiar. Adonai, Elohim, Adonai Ha Aretz and Metatron are all titles representing various aspects of Shekinah."
This is simply to show that Waite did recognize Metatron as an aspect of Shekinah. His references from the Zohar aren't merely accounts from a historical perspective, he incorporated it into his own methodology. Of the four names listed, Metatron is the only one who's an angel.
