Just as with Michael, it's important to remember in interpreting the original meaning that this was a rhetorical question for the ancient Israelites, implying to them "no one can ever be like Yahweh."

I don't care for the spelling or pronunciation that much. I prefer Mikyla!

Good nickname for any names starting with 'Mic' element would be Mike.

My name is Micaiah. Pronounced Mah-Ky-Uh. The correct pronunciation of it is My-Kay-Uh, but we already got Mu-Kay-la far to often. I mean, seriously! There is no L! I think it is good for both male and female people. My parents named me after a profit from the old testament.

Years ago, I went to school with a girl named Micaiah. I din't like her much, and the name I associate too much with her now. I like the sound of it though, but I prefer Micah. Michaela spelled only that way and not Makayla or Mikayla is also nice.

My name is Micaiah, I tend to be quiet when I'm around strangers, I'm 13 years old and I'm proud or my name. I don't let people boss me around and I know I'm beautiful.

I think this name mean "like Yahweh", and my name is actually Micaiah C.

My name is Micaiah and I am very feminine. Have been for 21 years. It's pronounced mi (like mince)- ky( like the beginning of Kyle) -uh. I go by Kyah. Pronounced just like the last bit of my name. Whether I give someone my full name or the short version I've gotten nothing but compliments. Those of you who say it's just for men, I very much so beg to differ.

My name is Micahia, I am a girl... Growing up I never knew anyone else had my name but I've come to realize as I am older that it is now more popular but as a boys name. My parents changed the spelling to make it more feminine. We pronounce it Mah-kai-uh or Mih-Kah-yuh. My nickname is Kya (pronounced like the end of my name or Gaia (guy-uh) with a K for Kai-uh) My username is just my name switched around.. Kya-Me or Kaia-Me. Lol.

Some of these comments are so funny and so so dumb.
Micaiah I pronounced my-KAY-yuh. And it is ALL BOY!
You aren't being "cute or original" by dumbing down the spelling with some crap like McKyah.

My youngest daughter's name is Micaiah, said Mi (short i), kay a, the name has a purpose of giving glory to God, she does this daily in her life and lives up to the name given her. All names have a meaning and a purpose and we should be wise when we name our children.

It's My-kay-uh. Bing translator.

Pronounced "mee-kah-yah".

I like Micaiah for a girl and Micah for a boy. They're two totally different names, but one just seems more feminine to me.

I pronounce this mick-EYE-uh and I like it for both boys and girls - but I have never come across it in real life.

My daughter's name is Micah; I pronounce it meh'-ky. I had a dream when I was pregnant with her of the letters in her name; I couldn't figure how I'd pronounce it, so it came out the way it did. When I yell at her, I pronounce it in the biblical form - she knows I mean business. Actually after I put her in a fashion show, & they mispronounced her name as my-kah; she got so many compliments and praises, she pefers it. - SO POSH.

In the game Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn for Nintendo Wii, one of the main characters you play is Micaiah, called the Maiden of Dawn.

I definitly see this as a girls name, it's a nice alternative to Michaela / Mikayla, and fits nicely with Mariah and Shania, and similar.
HanasMom  3/21/2008
Pronounced mi-KY-a not mi-kay-a, although I'm sure both are valid.

I know a little boy named Micaiah and it is pronounced "mi-KIE-a" ("kie" rhymes with "sky").

This name is too strong sounding for a girl in my opinion. I love it for boys though. Not a name you hear a lot.

Not one of my favorite names but I have only seen it used for boys and myself I find the name masculine.

I know a little boy named Micaiah, pronounced "mick-KYE-uh". And I just love this name! I bought a stuffed elephant recently and named him Micaiah Zander. My sisters say that Micaiah is a very feminine name, but I've always thought it was very masculine. Great, great name.

I'd love this name for a girl, I would spell it McKyah.

Cute spelling, but keep in mind that this spelling alters the meaning a bit, and combines languages. The new meaning would be, "Son of the Lord's likeness," or something to that effect. It would be a combination of the Gaelic element "mac," meaning "son," and the Hebrew elements "ki" meaning "like/similar" and Yah. Now, the interesting thing about Gaelic is that it's likely either a daughter language of Hebrew, or a sister language through Lebanese Phoenician. Either way, they're related. And Gaelic names exist today that are constructed from late additions of Aramaic and Greco-Hebrew, such as the name McGillion (son of the servant of John).

I would pronounce this name mih-ky-ah for a girl.
