The name Michelangelo is perfect. It's beautiful, handsome, elegant & classy (this name absolutely deserves all the positive adjectives one can think of). Thanks to TMNT, I know about this name. :D.

From the Italian form of the given name Michael and the Italian word for angel. Possibly a reference to the Archangel Michael, who appears in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. While various forms of the names Michael and Angel are popular throughout the world, the name Michelangelo remains rare in usage. Other forms of Michelangelo include Michel-Ange (French), Miguel Ángel (Spanish), Michêlagnul (Friulian), Mikeranjero (Japanese), Michael Angelus (Latin), and Mikelandželas (Lithuanian)

This name sounds too much for a child to live up to. Michelangelo created lovely works of art, and I don't think anyone mowadays can copy them. It also makes me think of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

I simply love this name. I already have a plan for my son as he grows with this name. As a small child I'll call him Mickey, then as a teenager I'll call him Mick then he'll probably like Michelangelo by the time he's an adult. I love the relation with Mick Jagger and of course, Michelangelo himself.

It would sound hopelessly pompous on a person today.

Ok, I would definitely consider this a name for a future son. It sounds brave, and it sounds much better than Michael. But as a middle name though, because immature children would make fun of him.

I like how this name has two well-known names, but the name itself is hardly used.
