Title of a beautiful song-
Michelle, ma belle, these are words that go together well, my Michelle
Michelle, ma belle, sontles mots qui vont tres bien ensemble, tres bienensemble
I love you, I love you, I love you, that's all I want to say until I find a way
I will say the only words I know that you'll understand.

I need you, I need you, I need you, I need to make you see oh what you mean to me
until I do I'm hoping you will know what I mean

I want you, I want you, I want you, I think you know by now
I'll get to you somehow until I do I'm telling you so you'll understand
Michelle, ma belle sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble, tres bienensemble
I will say the only words I know that you'll understand, my Michelle

It's a Beatles song. John Lennon went through a French phase, and to woo a French girl, Michelle, he wrote a song about her. He doesn't know French fluently, only pretended to so he could impress her.
-- BookHead  10/1/2008
BookHead is incorrect about the use of this name in the Beatles song Michelle. Firstly, Paul McCartney sang and wrote most of it. Secondly, McCartney and Lennon would make up French sounding songs to sound sophisticated during the Quarymen days (pre-Beatles). The wife of a friend of McCartney's taught French, so he asked her to translate "These are words that go together well," which is "sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble." She also came up with "Michelle, Ma Belle."

It's a beautiful song and I always think of it when I hear the name.

Also the name of that dumb annoying little spoiled brat on Full House, Michelle Tanner (as portrayed by the Olsen Twins).
-- Anonymous User  9/25/2005
A famous bearer of this name is the Mamas and the Papas (a famous 1960s singing group probably best known for their song "California Dreaming") member Michelle Phillips, wife of John Phillips, also a group member (born Holly Michelle Gilliam on June 4, 1944). She kicked off the group for a while, but ended their era with them again in 1968.

Michelle is a very nice name, considering that it is my middle name. And it's *not* just the feminine form of Michael. Michael can also be the masculine form of Michelle. Sorry, I'm a bit of a feminist.
-- Anonymous User  11/20/2005
Well, Michelle is my middle name also, and I have to say it IS the feminine form of Michael. The name Michael came first, being mentioned in the Bible written centuries before the name Michelle. I love my name, and I'm glad it means "Who is like the Lord?"
-- breakofday  12/16/2005
I love my name! I find it much better than Lisa, because this would have become nearly my name.
-- Anonymous User  12/31/2005
I love this name. It brings to mind the word "composure". Also used in the great tv show "24" - Michelle Dessler played by the beautiful Reiko Aylesworth.
-- bas  1/5/2006
Another feminine pet form of Michel I have heard is Michette. I think it's a bit antiquated now, and Michelle and Micheline are more popular.
-- hana  2/7/2006

This is my name and I am happy about that. I wish that this name had a meaning of its own other than being a feminization of a male name. I think that this name has a beautiful soft sound, not unlike Sophie. I am happy that such a feminine name need not end in 'a' like Michaela.
-- Anonymous User  3/24/2006
My sister's name is Michelle. I think it is a very pretty name, and has a mind of its own. I don't care that it is the *feminine* form of Michael. It doesn't seem like that, so who should care?
-- ljs73  4/2/2006
I've NEVER liked this name. It just doesn't sound very nice I think. Maybe it's because it's so popular.
-- Anonymous User  4/29/2006
I think it is a sexy, feminine name. I love names with a "sh" sound in them.

Michelle is my middle name, after the aforementioned Beatles song.
-- viper  5/28/2006
I've always liked this name; it's very pretty. I have a friend and a sister with this name. It's very popular, but I still like it. And I believe that the name's popularity will drop with the coming generations, after being so very popular for so long. It will be a classic, I think.

Famous bearer: Actress Michelle Williams from "Dawson's Creek."

Famous bearer: Michelle Branch (born 2 July 1983), American singer-songwriter, formerly a solo artist but now a member of The Wreckers, and most famous for her hit 'Everywhere'. She is apparently named after the Beatles' song 'Michelle'.
-- reservoirdoll1987  6/17/2006
I like the meaning of Michelle, which is "Who is like the Lord". It happens to be my real name. The name Michelle is also the English name of Michiru, also known as Sailor Neptune, from the anime show Sailor Moon.

I really don't like this name, even though all the Michelles I know are very friendly and nice.
-- Anonymous User  6/29/2006
On the English verison of Sailor Moon, Sailor Neptune is named Michelle.
-- Hailey2006  7/7/2006
Michelle is the American version of Sailor Neptune in the anime Sailor moon. The Japanese name version's name is Michiru.

I think it's a beautiful name, simple because Michelle is one of my favorite characters on the episode, along with her partner and lover, Amara ((Haruka)).
-- Spammer479  10/9/2008
My only problem with the name Michelle is that its French pronunciation is the same as the pronunciation of the masculine name Michel.

My sister's name is Michelle and we all call her Shelli or Shells or Shelli-Belli. Michelle just seemed too long for her.

-- svit-kona  7/27/2006
My name is Michelle, and it's a very easy name to work with. I neither like, nor dislike my name, because I'm so used to it, I guess. My middle name is Abbie, which I guess sounds pretty: Michelle Abbie.
-- LoveTheNameMackenzie  8/9/2006
Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar bears this name.
-- elliebeth  8/26/2006
I like this name, it is a very pretty name. I have a friend named Michelle and she is really nice so whenever I meet another Michelle I expect the same!
-- AlexisHaberly  10/7/2006
The French pronunciation of the name is far better than the English one, but the name is still so overused. I always associate it with the eighties!
-- khaotickharma  11/7/2006
Michelle Tumes is a Christian music artist.
-- Anonymous User  11/11/2006
Michelle is my middle name. I personally don't think it is a good first name because it's become so popular it's now a little bland. But that's my opinion.
My little brother that died when he was born is named "Michael". I am honored to share that name with him, who I wish I knew. I adore the meaning, "Who is like the LORD?" I like my middle name overall. I'd give it a 6/10 or 7/10.
-- Adr90  11/11/2006
My name is Michelle, I have been a Michelle for 16 years and I think it's a nice name. Hardly no one calls me Michelle when they're not mad. I have a lot of nicknames, that includes Michi (my favorite), Michela, Missy, Chela, Ella, Chely, Ellie, Mich, Micha, Michely, etc, etc.
-- michi_vane  1/13/2007
I think that Michelle would make a very pretty middle name of a short first name like Lilli, Lilly or Sandra. Michelle reminds me of the beach (shell). It also reminds me of the sunshine.

-- iva_toneva  2/13/2007
My name is Michelle, a name not as popular in Australia. Don't get me wrong there are a fair few Michelle's around but I have always felt my name is special. I spell my nickname Chelle rather than Shell because there is no S in my name and it annoys me! I agree that it obviously was more fashionable back in the 80's but I think it is a classic name that will always have a place.
-- Chelle  2/19/2007
I like this name because it's my middle name ♥ Go me! the only problem is I know way too many Amber Michelles. =[
-- x3ThatGurlAmberx3  3/24/2007
I think that Michelle is one of the most feminine and prettiest names. There's not a better one out there.
-- Anonymous User  4/8/2007
Michelle's my middle name and I like it, it's not 'shameful' like some people's middle names. The only thing I don't like is that my brother's middle name is Michael and that's the reason I have Michelle as my middle name.
-- lisa_7  4/11/2007

My sister's name is Michelle and we call her Chelley for short. It suits her. I've always liked it spelled Michele better though.
-- jaimej  6/12/2007
Common-sounding.
-- Surreal  6/30/2007
Michelle is for people who automatically think a name is beautiful just by virtue of the fact that it's French. French names just make me think of porn stars.
-- queenv  10/3/2007
My name is Michelle and I think it's a very trendy name that has now died out. It rose after the Beatles' song came out and went during the nineties.

My name is Michelle. I like my name but I like to be called Chelly, I don't like it when people spell it Shelly.
-- Anonymous User  11/9/2007
This is my daughters name and I love it. We named her Michelle Leanne and the Michelle came from the song "My Michelle". It fits her well since she loves the Lord----Meaning being like the Lord. I really believe our names are significant to our life and hold great value to who we are and should be appreciated for that reason. I especially love biblical names for that reason.

I like Michelle because I like Michael. It's a better feminine version than Michaela because Michelle is stable, calm and lovely while Michaela has been so badly used and oddly spelled that it is just too slutty.
-- gio2475  6/26/2008
Michelle is my middle name. I think that it is very pretty but the only thing I don't like about it is that it makes my full name 26 letters long.
-- xtina  7/16/2008
For me, Michelle sounds like a very EVIL name, no offense if it's your name. The chelle is the part that sounds evil to me.

This is a pretty name that suits girls and women of all ages. It sounds quite similar to names like Rachel and Rochelle, but they're not related. The only problem is that it has the word hell in it.

Michelle is a beautiful name. My mother's middle name is Michelle, and she has always gone by her middle name. To me it brings to mind someone smart, strong, and determined, but that may be because that's how my mother is. I plan to use it as a middle name for my first daughter.
-- britto08  1/17/2009
This is also my name ^_^ But it's my second name. I think it goes better with Eunice in front of it. (only in my opinion) I like Michelle and Eunice together because they make a good combination. My first name is Eunice and many people always forget it. So I just ask them to call me by my second name which is Michelle, that is easier to remember and spell :P. I love this name ^_^ It always makes me think of ME in a SHELL = Meshell (Michelle) cool huh?
-- Stralbem  3/1/2009
My aunt's name is Michelle, and I usually call her 'Chel-Chel' which is pronounced Chelle-Chelle. I love how it ends in an 'elle', but that might be because I have a lot of people in my family that names end in 'elle' (Janelle, Gabrielle, Marielle).

It's okay. Not good or bad. Average.
-- lucyskydiamonds  3/8/2010
Seemed like one of those run of the mill names until one day, I came across it and was caught off guard by its sweetness. I love eccentric and out there names, but this has been added to my PNL. Might even use it.
-- silly_rabbit  6/8/2010
Just another name used within an inch of its life. For all its popularity, it's never appealed to me. There's something trite about it, despite it being touted as "sweet" and "beautiful", but this may have more to do with Full House than I'd like to admit. Whatever the reason, I've come to rather dislike the name. Its usage was probably inspired by French being the go-to language for all things romance, but with hundreds of Michelles running around, it's hardly exotic or an original connection. Despite everyone imagining a beautiful woman when they hear this name, I think it's quite juvenile.
-- Wilted  6/15/2010
One of my sisters is named Michelle. She has gone by 'Shelly' from the time she was little. I happen to love this name, even if it is wildly popular.

My middle name is Michelle because my first name wasn't very common when I was born and my parents wanted a more contemporary middle name. While I'm glad my middle name isn't 'Rose' or 'Nicole' or another typical middle name, I really wish they'd been a little more classic and original.
-- Anonymous User  3/7/2011
A bit bland, but it still makes a good middle name.
-- Christina Rose  6/4/2011
This is my name :) I don't like it at all, growing up there were always several other Michelle's so I was always "Michelle R." never just plain Michelle. I also hate when people call me Shell or Shelly. I think it's better used as a middle name, or not at all lol.

I've only met one Michelle and she was a huge backstabber and only cared about herself and her money. So naturally if you have his name I will be a bit leery of you.
Anyways~
Sound: It sounds pretty, but almost to the point of sounding plain.
Spelling: 10/10
Uniqueness: 6/10 It's a pretty common name, but not overused.
Overall: The name is nice.

Michelle Henke is a main character in the Honor Harrington series of Military SF novels by David Weber. She is the title character's best friend, and is noted for being an excellent tactician with a sense of humor and an outgoing personality. She is also a fan favorite, and one of my favorite characters in the entire series.
-- Anonymous User  12/24/2013
It's a very feminine name and I think it's a good 'filler' name. When you can't think of a middle name for your daughter, put Michelle in there and 9 times out of 10 it'll flow well with ANY first name. But, the downside for me is that it's super popular and why I don't particularly like it... but it is pretty.
