"It's true, the spelling is difficult for some people. On the other hand, it's an automatic intelligence test to quickly identify people who can't comprehend anything different even if you tell them how to spell it letter-by-letter. I had the choice of Micah or Paul and stuck with Micah. Seems fitting as I'm a unique individual." Sep. 4, 2009:
"What a beautiful MALE name. Only an idiot would name a girl Micah." Jul. 2, 2009:
"A beautful MALE name. We are expecting our first child (a boy) in December. My name is Michael, so this is like having a Jr. without really having one." Jun. 23, 2009:
"My son's name is Myca...it means "one who is like God (Jehovah)". I'm a transplant to Hawaii and found that are many, many "Micah"s here, but I still receive a lot of compliments regardless." Oct. 13, 2007:
"I knew a Micah and he was a very upstanding, popular, cute, nice guy! Very original. Good alternative to Michael, but almost a bit feminine (hence all the girl Micahs). What does it mean?" Dec. 23, 2006:
"I named my first-born son Micah. It is my favorite name for a boy. People spell it wrong all the time. They mostly spell it Micha." Dec. 8, 2006:
"It's on my name list for boys. I love the sound and especially the unique spelling. It's sort of like Michael, but not so tired and common. The only thing I worry about is when I see people using it for girls... also, I am a religious person that finds meaning in many religions, NOT only Christian religions, so I'm not sure about using a biblical name..." Oct. 3, 2006:
"I find it intriguing that "Micah" happens to relate to the Indonesian pop-star. I dislike the suffix of the name but will continue my research in mosambique" Jul. 9, 2006:
"This is my favorite name in the world. To be fair, however, it is also MY name." Apr. 2, 2006:
"My brother's name is Micah and people always misspelled it and tended to call him "Mike", which he hated. I love this name." Aug. 12, 2005:

"people pronounce my name like meek-uh all the time when it's supposed to be pronounced as mike-uh. it get's tiring and annoying after the 1000th time. but i like my name for its rarity i suppose. and it gets spelled wrong all the time as micha. never met anyone else with the same name as me : )" Jan. 23, 2011:
"Well, at school there is a guy named Micah and most people say "Micheal or mike", he's a good kid, actually, my crush..." Mar. 3, 2010:
"My name is Micah and I get compliments on the name all the time. The only bad thing is that I get called Mike every day and most people want to spell it Micha due to the name Michael. Regardless, I think it's a good name and a solid one. My parents named me after Micah in the Bible, and being a Christian myself has opened the door for some ministry opportunity when people ask the origin." May. 14, 2008:
"The name actually means "who is like God (YHWH)." It is more of a rhetorical question than a statement, and would never be considered "one who is like," since the answer to the question would be "no one."" Dec. 12, 2007:
"I adore this name. My Best friend was named Micah, and I intend on naming my child Micah Paxton" Mar. 11, 2007:
