I like the name Micah but the character Micah Bell from Red Dead Redemption 2 ruined it for me. Such a despicable character. I can't look at this name without thinking about him.

My name is Micah, but I'm a girl. Is it bad?

I love the name Micah! So much so that I said if I ever have a son I would name him Micah James. Sure enough in 2018 I gave birth to my first born and his name is Micah. I'll admit it's more unique this day and age but traditionally this is definitely a male name. It's not even supposed to be unisex.

I love the name Micah! I never thought of it as a male's name though. There’s something really feminine about the name and I think it’s the feminine form of Michael. I like it as a female name. I agree it’s unisex, but personally I like it as a girl’s name more than a boy’s name.

I like the biblical association and think it is a very spunky, cool name. But it's too common in my area. I'm interested in Micah as a girl's name.

Micah was a biblical prophet and it is the name of the shortest book included in the King James version of the Christian Bible.
For those that want to argue whether the name is masculine or femanine, historically it is considered as a derivative of Michael, and masculine. I personally have known both male and female Micahs, and chose the name for my own son. Due to modern usage, it can be considered as gender-neutral or unisex as are many other names today, (ie- Terry, Shannon, Taylor, Jamie, Kelly, Jodie, Stacy, Tracy, etc...)

The name Micah is ORIGINALLY a BOYS name, derived from the biblical name Micaiah. It doesn't matter how many times the name has been used on girls, it is still TRADITIONALLY a boys name. There are many boys' names that have been used on girls, and that's perfectly fine (do what you want), but it doesn't change the fact that the names are originally for boys. People still don't seem to understand this concept, and I'm not sure why people would be offended by it. It's just the truth, but it doesn't make any of it wrong. My son's name is Evan. There are girls named Evan, but it's still a boys' name at the end of the day, it just so happens that there are also some little girls out there running around named Evan.

Mica is a feminine version of Michael and I cannot believe anyone would think this name works for a boy. I guess if you want your child to be bullied and tormented you could name a boy Micah. I would personally never do such a thing. Michael is for boys and Mica is for girls. By the way, Mica is a popular name in Europe for GIRLS.

My name is Micah and I'm a female. I think it's kind of offensive to say that it's preferred to be a boy name. I mean I get it that some boys are named Micah but my (only) good friend from second grade is also named Micah. It's pronounced as My-ca.

Proud to say that as of one hour ago I have a grand daughter who carries the name Micah. A beautiful name regardless of gender usage.
Musbod  12/27/2017
This is a really cool name. I'll admit, the first time I heard it was in a story (not the Bible, I'm not one for religion) but I'm really glad I did, because it's pretty nice.
Micah on girls... eh. No thank you, though it's somewhat understandable.

My name is "Mycah". Spelled like it sounds. I am female. I was named after my father, "Michael." Of course I think it's a girl name because I've been a girl with this name my whole life. It wasn't until my sophomore year of high school when a girl insulted me and asked did my parents think I was a boy before I was born. That was the first time I experienced someone who had a problem with my name. It hurt a lot but whatever. I love my name. I've met more boys with the name but I've also met girls. But the girls I've met always had their names doctored. Whether it was spelled like "Micha, Mycha, Mikah", or they would have something in front of it like "Mae" or something. It's unique. Growing up too, my name was always pronounced wrong and I never understood why because it looks like it sounds. "My-Cah" or "My-Cuh". But everyone doesn't have the same teachers, so you can't blame them. I'll forever love and embrace my name. A name is a name, with a personality, is all.

My name is Micah and I am a girl. My parents mixed Micah with Antonette- that's why my real name is Micah Antonette. People with this name are very rare here in the Philippines. Actually, I know that it is a biblical name and I saw the name on a history book (entitled A History of the World) particularly on page 56. I know a few with the name Micah and they were all men. Well, to be honest I'm really proud of my name because it was a rare one. It catches the interest and curiosity of the people I meet. Micah is not really bad for a girl. I hope this will help.

I actually only know girls with the name Micah - spelled Micah. I live in a diverse area so I think that's part of it, which I am glad as I feel the majority of folks who come on here are a bit over the top with their opinions " I would NEVER name my child THAT.." are you flippin' serious? It's 2017 - name your child whatever you want. And if it's so uncommon and gender bending to name a girl a "boys name" - maybe you should get out more. 3 cheers for Micah as a girl's or boy's name - it's beautiful and definitely not "ghetto" -which what does that remark even mean? #getoveritpeople.

I know 8 Micah's all of them are BOYS they are really nice boys all around the same age and every single one knows each other! I don't love it on a girl probably because I have never heard it, but I think it looks more feminine spelt 'Maka' pronounced 'meeka' as a girl.

It's a feminine name as well, not just masculine. I have a female friend named Micah.

A handsome yet cute name for a boy. Please don't ruin this name and give it to girls. "Mika" is pronounced MEE-kah (a COMPLETELY different name, with a different meaning) whereas "Micah" is pronounced "MY-kah". "Micah" is the name of several people (who happen to be MEN) in the Hebrew Bible.

This name isn't for girls. It's a completely masculine name and should stay that way. I could say Benjamin or Jonathan are for girls, but that wouldn't make it so. We don't need any more stolen male names being put on females. If you like the sound of it, spell it Mika so it doesn't look like you're so desperate for a name for your daughter, you decided to use a boy's name.

Um, Micah isn't just a masculine name, it's for girls too.
Artimis99  11/13/2011
I absolutely love this name. Even though the name is masculine it just gives a positive connotation. But I plan on giving all of my children Bible names or names that derive from Biblical names because mine is in the Bible too.

A hideous name that looks and sounds made-up-- if not "ghetto," so to speak. I first imagined it to be pronounced as MEE-Kah... eel.

Word of advice: do not choose this name. Can you imagine a successful businessman bearing it? A doctor? Lawyer? Military General? No.

In response - I'd just say google Micah Jenkins - one of the most promising generals of the American Civil War when he died at 29.
We've just called our son Micah, and I think it's a great name!

The little boy named Micah that I know is the most precious boy I've ever met. It's a great name.

I like Micah on a boy. It's nice without sounding over religious. If you want it on a girl, use Micaiah.

I have also heard this name pronounced as MEE-kə.

This name is so handsome! I love it! I hate seeing it on girls, though. If you want something similar, use Mika, which is a lovely name [though, technically, unisex as it has separate origins for each gender].

Hitchcock's Dictionary of Bible names states that the meaning of the name Micah is "humble."

In Greek, the word humble looks like this:

I have a cousin named Micah who is a girl, and I think it's actually a really pretty name for a girl. I personally wouldn't want to name my child Micah, because it is a boy's name, but I'm just saying that it isn't really all that bad on a girl.

I love the name, Micah - picture a tall, strong, yet gentle man. However, I loathe the very strong name of Micah on a girl. It ruins it for me.

My brother-in-law is named Micah. I've always known it to be a boy's name, I can't imagine it being a girl's name. It just sounds weird for a girl.

Mica (without the H) is a kind of mineral, usually very silvery.
memomo  5/25/2006
People make the misconception that Micah is the feminine name Misha. The pronunciations are completely different: Micah is pronounced My-Cah, wheareas as Misha is prounced Mee-shah. (I'm sorry I don't know how to write pronunciations properly). I think this could be because of the soul singer Mica Paris.

There is a lovely children's book called "The Little Angel" which is set on the night of Jesus' birth, in which the main character is called Micah; he is the young apprentice shepherd who has to stay behind and watch the sheep while the older shepherds go to visit the baby Jesus.

I like the name Micah as an alternative to Michael. It is a great biblical name. It is also increasing in popularity right now. I definitely prefer it for a boy, not a girl.
