Definitions:  "Momentum" is the product of a body's mass and its velocity.   "Angular Momentum" or "Rotational Momentum" is the amount of rotation an object has, taking into account its mass, shape and speed. It is a quantity that represents the product of a body's rotational inertia and rotational velocity about a particular axis.  Angular momentum is conserved in our Universe.  That's why an ice skater spins faster when the arms are drawn in, and slower when the arms are extended.
