The Japanese feminine Mika means "beautiful fragrance," not "new moon." It is also pronounced MEE-kah.

Mika is _not_ "Finnish form of Michael" as claimed but a short form of Mikael - i.e. Finnish form of _Mike_. [noted -ed]

A famous bearer of this name is Mika Hakkinen, the world champion F1 driver.

The name of the F1 world champion is Mika Häkkinen, not Hakkinen.

To those who say that this name sounds better on a girl, please consider the cultural background.

This is nice on guys, but I got to agree with others; it sounds best on a girl.

My sister has this name. But it's pronounced the same way as Micah from the Bible. It's like a female spelling.

It is also Croatian short from Nikola (male). I don't agree that this name is for girls. I prefer to see it on a boy.

I think this is a cool name! I prefer it on a girl, mostly because it ends in "a" and most names that end in "a" are normally girl names. Although I like it, I probably won't name my future child this.

I could care less what this page states; I will always say Mika as My-kuh. Mika: a different spelling of Micah.

Mika was a very fashionable name for Finnish babies in the '60s and '70s. It was then used almost as often as the always common original form Mikael. In the 1970s Mikael was the 6th most popular name and Mika was the 8th.
Mikael has mostly been used as a second name while Mika has mostly been a first name. In 2017 Mika was the 11th most common first name for all male citizens of Finland.
