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

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 like this name! But ugh, it looks SO feminine to me spelled Mitchell, I prefer it spelled Mitchel.

I have a cousin Mitchy aka Mitchell. I like this name better than Michael. It isn't that popular at all.
-- blueeyesparkle  9/12/2013
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".
-- jdstew76  12/27/2014
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.
