I've never met another Michelle spelled Micheal! But I have met Michaels spelled Micheal!! It gets very confusing but it's all good!! Makes life interesting!!" Jul. 6, 2014:

"Named my son Micheal. Since I'm dyslexic I tend to spell phonitically, so I spelled it MichEAL. I've had so many arguments over the "correct" spelling, but once people here dyslexic they back off. He likes it. Makes him stand out from the 3 other Michael's in his class. They spell the same way, but my Micheal is different. He likes it so much he refuses to go by Mike or Mikey, it's Micheal. He's only 9. We will see how long it lasts." Feb. 24, 2011:

""My husband father's name is Michael. When he passed away I was pregnant with my son. When my son was born we decided that one of his middle names was going to be Michael after his grandfather but when I went to register him I wrote Micheal not realizing that I wrote the wrong thing until I went for his birth paper but I was glad that I did because everyone else spells it this way (Michael) his way is unique and different which I love. I left it like that and I do not regret it one bit. Thumbs up to all the people whose Michael is spelled Micheal including my baby boy. It is only recently I went on the internet to see if Michael could be spelled Micheal and found out that it could be which I am extremely thrilled about. MICHEAL is a beautiful way to spell Michael. I LOVE IT." Apr. 9, 2010:

"My Uncle's name is Micheal Dean Edberg. My brother was name for him,and my youngest uncle, David,. My brother had a teacher who at first, swore he had misspelled it, then insisted it was pronounced Michelle!
The name is Irish in origin, and being of Scotch Irish descent, it is quiet fitting. I love the fact that these two dear men spell their name this way! It makes me proud that they do.I have decided She must not have been very bright. The year before, she took issue with me. My given name is Kathy. I was held in detention because I refused to write Katherine on my papers. She informed my mother I was required to put my "Christian name on all school work. She was very perturbed to find out from Mom, that my Christian name was indeed Kathy!" Sep. 15, 2008:

"Micheal is my middle name and the one I was summoned by. Typically I'm greeted as Mike. Don't know if it was an accident or a mid-western spelling. I do have a first name but it was never used either out of grief or respect for the Uncle killed during WW II with whom I share the same first name." Mar. 7, 2011:
"My mother named me Micheal. She was an Italian born immigrant. The teachers in school told me I was spelling it wrong and 'corrected' me. My mom didn't want to go against the tide, the name of the game was assimilation in the early 60's." Jan. 28, 2010:
"I gave my son the middle name Micheal and have been corrected (I was told I misspelled the name) as well as he has. Just recently he was told he misspelled his own name on his passport. This has only come up a few times in his life because you don't use your middle that often. But everyone is sure that we are misspelling it." Dec. 29, 2009:

"Its pronounced as Michael is in the USA
It is spelled tis way as a Gaelic name for sure and its closer to the french Michel call it an Anglicized Michel
I like the uniques spelling and thast the way my mom told me to spell it\. Perhaps to our french ancestry and not wantig it t be confused with michelle the girls name amongst the ignorant in the USA" May. 6, 2008:
"This is my name. It was spelt without the h, as in old Irish, a dot or bulcha over the c was used to invoke the ch sound, also a fada was usually present over the a. The correct modern spelling is Mıcheıl. The fada's over both the i and the e makes these vowels long giving the Me-ha-al or Me-hall sound. Hope that helped." Jan. 22, 2007:
"I born John Micheal in 1947. I was born on grandfather's (John) birthday and my family called me Micky. I thought my name was Michael John until I switched schools in 8th grade and my teacher told me it was John Michael. I jioned the US Airforce on April 10, 1966 and signed all my induction papers John Michael. At the end of the day the USAF officials showed me that the name on my birth certificate said John Micheal and I had to go back and change all the ae's to ea's. After my first military reprimand for not knowing what my name is,I still didn't know. Until a couple weeks ago I thought I had misspelled Michael on my induction papers and have always spelled my name as Michael since April of 1966. About two weeks ago(April 2006) I was looking at some of my old papers and I came accross my birth certificate. My name is spelled John Micheal. I never knew there is two spelings of the name michael.
