I kinda like this spelling.
This is my name and..I'm not that attached to it I don't really love it and not tryin to be a hater or anything but at school everybody spells it like "Makayla" instead of "Mikayla" I REALLY want to change my name and to be honest I don't even like the way it sounds either.
You have a beautiful name, and I bet you’re just as beautiful.
Mikayla; Mikael.
Mostly if your dad is named Mike, Michel, Mathew, and other names that are boy names you might be named Mikayla like me.
Micayla is a beautiful name, that's the only way it should be.
Very dated!
I've changed my mind, Mikayla looks better in my opinion.
I personally prefer Makayla over Mikayla. I'm not hating this name though.
Awful variant of a good name.
I used to like this name, but not anymore. It's too common. There are way too many Mikaylas in my school. I prefer the spelling Mikaela anyways.
I love love love this name, I love it so much I have 2 twins named MIKAYLA.
My name is Mikayla and I love my name. I’m 23 and my name wasn’t common when I was born. My dad's name is Micheal, my aunt's name is Michelle. My Grandma's middle name is Kay. My mom wanted me to be able to be called Kayla if I wanted. Unfortunately, I don’t like to be called Kayla. I definitely love my name. :)
Is Michaela that hard to spell? I dislike spellings like this. Kayla is also terrible and made up. Do people ever spell Michael weird, creative ways like Mikayl, Mckayl, or Mikail?
My name is Mikayla and I wasn’t always the biggest fan of the name. I used to ask people to call me Kayla. But as I’ve gotten older I’ve grown to love it. My mom named me after Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Lol. People usually don’t have a hard time pronouncing my name except a teacher I had in middle school. She always pronounced it as MY-Kayla. I always corrected her but she never got it right. My family calls me Kayla, KK, Kay & Mickey.
This is how I spell my name, and I love it! My mother pronounces it sometimes saying "MY Kayla" and it's adorable. I love the spelling mostly because I feel like it looks more sweet, and I love when people attempt to pronounce it! I'm told it is unique and beautiful, not trashy or anything of the sort!
My name is Mikayla (ma-kay-la) and I love it! My dad thought it was a pretty name and named me it! When people see my name they call it (ma-kI-la) or even worse. That's the only thing I don't like about my name, but other than that I Love my name.
This is MY name and I do NOT particularly love it when people call me 'trendy, trashy, vapid, and a bastard, or childish!
Don't just say you hate it, give reasons PLEASE!
Well, my name is Mikayla, and I LOVE it, my dad always spells it K-L-A- (k-la) I always loved it when my mum called me MY Kayla, my brother calls me 'Mickey' or 'Mickey Mouse'
So personally I like the name and don't think it is gross or comical, etc... and MY mother can spell perfectly well.
So all the other Mikayla's 'you have an awesome name, I love it, don't change it'.
So as I was reading these comments, I got very upset because many people think that the spelling of this name is trashy or too trendy or it means parents can't spell. My birth name is Mikayla and my mother can spell excellently. It is so wrong to judge someone by their name. Just because it's spelled different? Really? Wow!
It is so comical that someday there will be a world full of 80-something-year-old women with this name, of course, with multiple various and 'unique' spellings. Personally, I feel its significant overuse can be likened to "Debbie" and "Diane" in the 60's and 70's, or "Marilyn" years before that. Name trends are interesting, but it's only been in the past decade or so that spellings have been tweaked so tremendously that there are increasing problems with forms, mail, SS#, etc., that I would rethink this name, or any names with odd spelling variations.
We named our daughter Mikayla - partly because my husband was a poor speller but he also wanted to name her after me (Kim), so her first 3 letters are my name backwards. I find the name much easier for her teachers and broadcasters (she plays sports) to pronounce and yes we were aware it is the female equivalent of Michael. In addition, the thought behind it was that as she got older and in the workforce, she could change it up some, which is very difficult to do with Michaela - so she could go by Kay or Kayla. Funny though her nickname has been Mik or Mak or M&M (middle name Marie) her whole life. She didn't care for her name when she was in kindergarten and changed her name to Rose for the year. After that she has loved the name and likes having something slightly different. She's now a junior in high school, and, yes, the only one with that name (small high school though - only 200 students).
What a dreadful, trashy name. Is it for parents who can't spell? When parents give their children weird novelty names like this one, and the only excuse the parents can give is that it's a "unique" name that makes their child unique (a fallacy in itself), don't they realize that a trendy name like Mikayla is the *opposite* of a unique name? I can't wait for this trend of intentionally misspelled names to be over, though of course by that time the damage will be done, inflicted on a generation of innocent victims.
This is my cousin's name, and several years after she was born, my aunt mentioned that she wished she'd picked the M-I-C-H-A-E-L-A spelling instead. "Michaela" IS the original and classic spelling of the name because it existed before the other spellings did, back when the name wasn't trendy and hadn't hit the top 1000.
I honestly prefer this spelling over all the other spellings of this name.
Everyone tries to argue that Michaela is the original and classic version of this name, but that's not even true. Michaela, Mikayla, Makayla, and McKayla all hit the top 1000 starting in the same year, 2000. Makayla was and always has been the most common spelling. So how are any of the variations less valid than Michaela?
Anyway, I dislike the spelling McKayla because it's not supposed to mean "son of" anyone. I don't like Michaela because people will read it and try to pronounce it like Michael. I also don't like Makayla because people will say "muh-KAY-luh" instead of "mih-KAY-luh", which is how I feel this name should actually be pronounced. So I don't think there's anything wrong with this spelling of the name.
Hm. Well to be nice, it's better than makayla, Mckayla or mikaila. But honestly, they're all horrible. It's supposed to be spelled Michaela, just michael with an a. But ever since the trashy modern name "Kayla" came around, everyone assumed it was Mc+Kayla. Which its not. I personally think this name sounds childish because it really does sound like mc and Kayla, but if you really have to use it please spell it right. No more of these tacky, modern, childish and silly "creative" spellings.
I think the name Mikayla is a great idea whose time has come, no matter what way it is spelled. If it's okay to put an "a" at the end of names such as Carl, Eric, Paul, Robert, etc., to make them girl names, then I see no reason not to with Michael, if you happen to be female and like that name. Mikayla is also a uniquely American name (the name Michael, or "Mikhail", in Russia is only used for boys - there are no "Mikhailas" in slavic-speaking countries). It also makes a great half of a double name (Mikayla Rose, Kayla Mae, Anna Makayla, etc.) for those in the southern U.S.
What I like about the original spelling is that it's easier to mispronounce, so it sort of reminds me of names in ancient Greek mythology that you'd never give your children but sound amazing or strong or beautiful that somebody is bound to mispronounce at some point, even though Michaela sounds nothing like one of those names. This version just simplifies it all, no offense if your name is spelled this way.
Michaela is too masculine and Mickayla has too many letters ; I like Mikayla because it's simple to spell and it's feminine and sweet.
I prefer this spelling over the traditional "Michaela" any day. I didn't even know that "Michaela" was pronounced the same way as "Mikayla" until someone told me. The fact that it has "Michael" in it just makes me wanna say "Michael-uh" every time. Screw tradition, don't name your kid with the hideous "Michaela"!
Trendy, trashy and vapid.
It's gross. Mikayla is a bastard child of Michaela. Please don't use this name (spelled this way) on your child.
A character on the Disney show Hannah Montana is called Mikayla.
I really don't like this spelling or any other modern spellings of this name. I prefer the original Michaela and the Scandinavian version Mikaela.
I think Mikayla and other misspellings of Michaela have become so popular that many parents chosing this name for their daughters have no idea that it's the feminine form of Michael. I think Michaela is a lovely name, but I simply can't stand Mikayla or any of the other trendy spellings.
Mikayla Marie McCaughey is the older sister of the McCaughey septuplets, Nathan Roy, Joel Steven, Natalie Sue, Alexis May, Kenneth Robert, Kelsey Ann, adn Brandon James.
My little sister's name is Mikaila. I like this name even though I only like 3 spellings: Mikaila, Mikayla, and Macayla. The others are a smidge too creative.
Mikayla sounds a little childish to me.
I really like this name, but I was actually surprised to find it was an alternate spelling for Michaela. Personally, I like this spelling far more than I like "Michaela". Even if there's no change in the meaning or pronunciation, I prefer Mikayla for the simple fact that it makes the name seem like more than just the feminine form of "Michael". Even though it's not really, I like it not being as obvious.
I love this spelling of the name. It is different and even though it does not change the name's pronounciaton or meaning I think it is easier to spell than Michaela. Michaela is the name of a girl at my school and substitutes always say Michael-a instead of Ma-kay-la. She gets so annoyed.
I hate all of these dreadful spellings of Michaela; spelling it differently does not make it a different name, let alone "unique".
I love the name Mikayla. It sounds cool.
This name is supposed to be spelled Michaela. I dislike it. It's too trendy.
