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.

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 have a friend whose name is Micah. He's a sweetheart, is very religious and quiet. I never heard this name before meeting him, but I love it!

The verse Micah 6:8 sets the standard required by God of His people.

Micah is probably one of my favorite names, just because I like the sound. I had a friend named Micah when I was younger, and all I remember about him is that he was really really nice.

On the television show Heroes, one of the characters is named Micah.

I had never heard of this name before except in the Bible, it's kinda growing on me.

Micah is also pronounced my-ka, not just mie-ka. This is my name and I'm offended when people pronounce it mie-ka.

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.

Pronounced "mee-kah" (shortly)

I absolutely love this name. It has a nice biblical meaning and a nice nickname to go with it (Mikey).

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.

There is a book in the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series called "Micah" by the author Laurell K. Hamilton. Micah is one of a string of characters connected to the main character Anita Blake.

I've always loved biblical names and Micah is one of my favorites.

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.

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

In Greek, the word humble looks like this:
Ταπεινός

In the Westminster Leningrad Codex copy of the Old Testament, Micah looks like this in Hebrew:
מיכה

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].

I have also heard this name pronounced as MEE-kÉ™.

I like Micah on a boy. It's nice without sounding over religious. If you want it on a girl, use Micaiah.
-- Dawson  1/2/2011
The little boy named Micah that I know is the most precious boy I've ever met. It's a great name.
-- Liesl  1/17/2011
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!
-- Pinguin  10/17/2011
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.

Um, Micah isn't just a masculine name, it's for girls too.

This name is also used for girls. I've only ever heard it on girls, one in real life and one in a novel.

Micah Wilkins is the protagonist of Australian author Justine Larbalestier's novel 'Liar'. She is a compulsive liar.

Pretty common, but can be a girl name by spelling it as Mika.

In the tv-show Emily Owens, M.D., one of the main characters is called Micah.
-- QuillHeart  6/3/2013
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.

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.
