Well, my nane is Mikaela, and I pronounce it Ma-kay-la, but then again, I'm American, and am probably pronouncing it wrong.

I think Ylva is refering to the Scandinavian pronunciation of the name since the name is Scandinavian. Now of course all languages have their own spelling of names so ma-kay-la does not have to be wrong.

It's very popular where I live.

Mikaela could be and probably is a variant of Michaela.

We pronounce it Mik-Ay-La.

Mikaela is my name and I never liked it growing up, because it was uncommon and people had difficulty pronouncing it, and it looked awkward to me, although most people I've met (including the two other Mikaela/Michaelas) I know like the name.

I never liked this name much until I met a Mikaela. This year she'll be a seventh grader and she is so freaking cute it's ridiculous! Because of her, I always think of a cute little girl when I hear this name.

My name is Mikaela, pronounced Mee-ka-ela. I'm also Mexican. I like my name, but sometimes I get super frustrated because my teachers keep saying Mikayla instead.

I love this name - so much so, that I chose it for my only daughter, Mikaela. We went with the Scandinavian spelling, so that she would hopefully avoid the people that pronounce the classic spelling "Michael-uh".

We also liked some of the newer spellings that have modernized the name, such as Makayla and Mikayla, but eventually Mikaela won our hearts with its streamlined look, Scandinavian spelling and distinction. We love the Swedish pronunciation as well, and since our family is quite international, we wanted a name that sounded good in many languages. We love the name and its meaning: "Gift from God". Our daughter suits the name perfectly.

The name Mikaela gives me the impression of being refined and respected.

I think it means "God with us", at least that's what I was told.

I pronounce the name Mi-kay-la. I think my family spells it weird (Mikaela) and the only other girl I've met with this name spells it Mikayla, which seems more of a natural spelling to me. Does anyone agree?
