At first glance, it looks like MIEK-eel. Well, if you think that, it is incorrect. The real pronunciation is MIEK-ǝl.
I’ve only ever seen this name when it’s a misspelling of Michael. It’ll always look like a typo to me, but to each their own, I guess.
A spelling mistake of a name which many pronounce as a car crash of sounds. A spelling mistake of of Michael, even with the letters in the order as supplied is not pronounced Mi-Heil as many seem to.
I get this and Michael confused a lot.
I used to always misspell Michael as Micheal. This is now just a misspelling to me, and I don't care for the name Michael or Micheal.
Looks like a misspelling.
I can’t stand it. It’s Michael or nothing. I scream when it is spelled Micheal!

Michéal (Irish).
I don't mind when people use this knowing it's the Irish form, but I HATE seeing it because you know half the time it's just that the people don't know how to spell Michael properly or want to be 'different' (how different can you be with just a slightly different variant of one of the most popular names of the century?)
I agree. If you want the Irish form of Micheal, then spell it with the fadas; Mícheál. It makes all the difference. And come on, Micheal looks like a typo, and everyone would pronounce it just the same as Michael.
It's pronounced just like the other Michael! I personally would know! I don't know why everybody makes a big deal about it!
Personally I don't like the name much, but whatever that's just my opinion.
