Never cared for this name. It looks too feminine, plus I can't stand Michel Temer. I think he's going to put more Brazilians off this name since I know he's going to screw up worse than Dilma.

I like the name Michel, that's my grandfather's name, (he's French) even if in America, we generally conform with the feminine form "Michelle".

The name Michel was in use but rare until about the 1940's in France, and remained extremely popular for about 20 years. It is now relatively uncommon and considered a bit middle-aged.

There's a character on Gilmore Girls named Michel Gerard, originally from France, played by Yanic Truesdale. He's kinda hysterical!

Origin of the name Michael: Saint Michael is the name of one of the 7 archangels. His name was the war-cry of the good angels in the battle fought in heaven against the enemy and his followers. Hebrew translation "Who is like God".

It's a nice name, but I always think about the feminine "Michelle" when I hear it.
