Weird. Just weird.

Blah, I always disliked this one. I don't like Richard OR Michael, and I tend to like a fair number of traditional names.

It doesn't sound feminine to me. It doesn't really sound masculine either. It sounds more like an old, pretentious word from the vocabulary of the British elite from a couple of hundred years ago.

Richard and Michael are both masculine names, so how is this name feminine? It sounds hideous and made-up. Who the hell thought of this name anyway?

If Michael and Richard are both masculine names, then why is Richmal feminine? It makes no sense.

Who the hell created this atrocity?
Until now, I've maintained (and I apologize to and for all the people named the following names) that Gay/Gaye, Lagina, Shaniqua, Happy, and Caprice/Capricia were the worst names you could bestow upon your daughter. Richmal just usurped them all.
Seriously, Richard and Michael are both *masculine* names! Blending them together for a *feminine* name has to be one of the dumbest things I've ever seen/heard. And it doesn't even sound good!

'Apparently'. That's so funny! My fav entry on here!
Horrendous name, not feminine at all and looks horribly fake!

A hideous name in general, the spelling is not appealing and the sound is to be likened to a dog hyperventilating.

This is actually an English name? It looks and sounds so forced and fake. At least some other invented names, or names created from joining parts of separate names, have better etymology behind them, and look and sound more natural.
