i like this for a boy. some may say its girly but i dont think it is. i think its a great way to honor a michael too but if u want something much less common. i think its getting popular now but its still nice. what are your thoughts on it? im always hesitant on boys names ending in ah but there are many nice ones. also i would say it my-ka like most ppl i think. but on paranormal activity it was mee-ka which i dont like..
curious what you think.
Micah is definitely a boys name! I did know one girl named Mikah and I always hated calling her that because it is such a boys name! I didn't used to like the name until I met the cutest little boy named Micah and it made me fall in love with the name!!! Such a great name!
I love Micah too! I've actually been struggling with adding it to my top 4 too. I have two daughters with unisex/surnames...and I'm concerned that the -ah at the end of Micah would make people assume I have three daughters.
I'm not getting why Micah (which isn't even unisex) is somehow perceived as female when Noah, Josiah, Jonah, Elijah, Zackariah, Isaiah, etc. are all easily excepted as male even when Noah has been used on a girl too! Maybe it's just the sound of it or the dearth of Micahs in general, but it is definitely a boy's name.
I honestly think of it as a girls name. I know it's common for boys, but I've never met a male Micah!! I have a female friend named Mica, though. It's the A sound at the end, in English it's so typically feminine. I just think it's weird for a boy....
Definitely My-kah, though. If I heard Mee-kah, I'd definitely assume it was a girl, and that it was spelt Mika....
Micah is not unisex at all! It is only a boy name and it makes me automatically think of the Book of Micah in the Bible. I would say Micah is similar to Emerson in that it is only a male name but it is used on girls anyway.
This site lists MY-kuh and MEE-kuh as pronunciations, but I usually take the first-listed pronunciation to be the more common (if not more correct). I love Micah and, if you have any pronunciation issues, just mention that it is like Michael, I guess.
I think it's a unisex name, much like Rowan. Maybe pair it with a more clearly masculine name if you're worried about whether it appeared feminine.
Even though Micah ends in an "a" sound, I think the rest of it sounds strong enough to be all boy.
I love the name Micah. Its adorable when they're little, but it totally works as a grown up, masculine name. When My husband and I were considering names for our little boy we went across it. Also, when I was growing up I had a friend with this name, but he spelled Myca. I really love this spelling.
I really love the name Micah. I'm actually sorta consdering it so it's funny you made this post. I've never heard somebody say it as "mee-ka", only "my-ka"-mI was watching Pregnant In Heels one time and there was a little girl who had this name.
I actually really like Micah. It was a contender for both of my boys and made our list if our twins were boys (but they will be girls).. I find it to be quite masculine. I don't know if that means anything to ya since apparently both my sons names are girl only names in America, Kendall & Addison. Good thing I live in the UK where both are still boy names, haha.
I also say Micah as My-ka.. Me-ka sounds a little odd to me.
I love Micah, too! I like Noah, Josiah, Jonah, Isaiah, etc., more than Micah atm, I think, but I still really love Micah, too. I read it in a book while I was in high school and I've loved it ever since. Partially for the association to Micah 6:8, and partially because of the guy in the book, haha, he was pretty awesome. :) I had loved Micah Everett as a combo--still do.
