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.
