I'd love this name for a girl, I would spell it McKyah.

Cute spelling, but keep in mind that this spelling alters the meaning a bit, and combines languages. The new meaning would be, "Son of the Lord's likeness," or something to that effect. It would be a combination of the Gaelic element "mac," meaning "son," and the Hebrew elements "ki" meaning "like/similar" and Yah. Now, the interesting thing about Gaelic is that it's likely either a daughter language of Hebrew, or a sister language through Lebanese Phoenician. Either way, they're related. And Gaelic names exist today that are constructed from late additions of Aramaic and Greco-Hebrew, such as the name McGillion (son of the servant of John).

I know a little boy named Micaiah, pronounced "mick-KYE-uh". And I just love this name! I bought a stuffed elephant recently and named him Micaiah Zander. My sisters say that Micaiah is a very feminine name, but I've always thought it was very masculine. Great, great name.

Not one of my favorite names but I have only seen it used for boys and myself I find the name masculine.

This name is too strong sounding for a girl in my opinion. I love it for boys though. Not a name you hear a lot.

I know a little boy named Micaiah and it is pronounced "mi-KIE-a" ("kie" rhymes with "sky").

I definitly see this as a girls name, it's a nice alternative to Michaela / Mikayla, and fits nicely with Mariah and Shania, and similar.

Pronounced mi-KY-a not mi-kay-a, although I'm sure both are valid.

In the game Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn for Nintendo Wii, one of the main characters you play is Micaiah, called the Maiden of Dawn.

My daughter's name is Micah; I pronounce it meh'-ky. I had a dream when I was pregnant with her of the letters in her name; I couldn't figure how I'd pronounce it, so it came out the way it did. When I yell at her, I pronounce it in the biblical form - she knows I mean business. Actually after I put her in a fashion show, & they mispronounced her name as my-kah; she got so many compliments and praises, she pefers it. - SO POSH.

I pronounce this mick-EYE-uh and I like it for both boys and girls - but I have never come across it in real life.

I like Micaiah for a girl and Micah for a boy. They're two totally different names, but one just seems more feminine to me.
