I've never really liked this name. It sounds slimy to me. But it's getting popular now in some places.

Micel (pronounced Mitchell) meant 'great' in Old English.

My best friend's name is Mitchell. It's actually his middle name. I love it. I think it is a little bit unique. I was quite shocked when it said that it came from the name Michael.

I really like this name, although it seems to be getting kind of common, but it isn't as overly used as Michael.

I have an uncle named Mitchell. It's so sweet and gentleman-like. I've only met a few other Mitchells. I'm glad this name isn't overused, it's a nice change from Michael, although I've met plenty of Michaels who were nice and handsome.

When I hear this name I think of a fast, short soccer-loving kid.

I don't consider Mitchell unusual or refreshing at all. This name is very popular for teens and early 20s in my area.

WHY would you name a kid this? It is my least favourite name out of all names. Eek, it sounds like fingernails down a blackboard. Mitchell. It's the 'itch' sound especially. Just don't name your son this.

I have a cousin Mitchy aka Mitchell. I like this name better than Michael. It isn't that popular at all.

To be honest with you, I LOVE this name, but probably would never name a boy this because you know at some point he would get teased by someone calling him "Mitch the Bitch".

Soooo much better than Michael in my opinion, and Mitch is a cute nickname.
lilpimpteller  3/24/2015
The name Mitchell is freaking sexy and HOT! It's a very respectable sounding name that ages well. :D.

This name is awful. I can't stand the nickname Mitch and it sounds like the name of some trashy British guy who spends all his time at the bar drinking beer and whiskey. Plus Mitchel Musso is a pretty bad association too, considering he has criminal charges for drunk driving. And then there's Hurricane Mitch. Definitely not a name I would ever consider!

Another Essex chav name. Mitchell when spoken in the finest estuary twang reminds one of council estates and tattoos.

Classic name for a powerful man. I don't prefer the nickname "Mitch" though.
keikeikelly  10/27/2017
Mitchell is also said to come from the Old English word 'mich' meaning "big" and 'hill'. So "someone who lived on or near a big hill." Another early form is Mickel.

I love the name "Mitchell" because it's nice and God fearing. At first when I was given the name Mitchell I was angry. Now I can see the usefulness of the name. My name is "Mitchell".

I don't really like this name. It just doesn't have that great of a sound to it, plus it's quite old fashioned. I can only picture it on adults or old men.

This name is a great alternative to Michael, which is an extremely common name. Michael sounds good too but Mitchell sounds somewhat younger and more energetic than Michael. I know that the short form of the name rhymes with a bad word but I won't mind giving my future kid this name. However, there's a bad association with the name: Hurricane Mitch in 1998 claimed almost 20000 lives in Central America, which put it as the 2nd deadliest hurricane on record.

Very nice, classic name. Kinda nerdy sounding though.
