"Mijo's name is Mizael. I love it and think it is the best name. I hadn't seen it spelled with a z before except him, so big up to Mizael from Brazil! We live in San Antonio, TX and people STILL have a hard time with his name. I really didn't think it would be such a big deal, but people say it wrong all the time. Usually like "Mi-za-yel" with the "Mi" being like the first part of "mister" instead of the Spanish "me." It drives me crazy to hear people butcher such a beautiful name. My son is 4 and now it doesn't bother him (I asked him) that his classmates say it wrong. I hope he will grow up to always love his name, Mizael Paz, and makes sure everyone comes correct on the pronunciation!" Dec. 9, 2010:
"Hi! Misaels of the world. I named my son Misael, he is 4 years old. He likes to be called Misa. I met a person ones from Oaxaca and his name was Misael.

Language of origin: Hebrew
Meaning/translation: Who is what God is?
Info about origin: in the Bible Misael is a friend of Daniel
Words: miy=who; el=God, the powerful
Variants: Misael German, English (#716 in US popularity)
I am also a Christian and I loved it even more when I found out that the name of Misael is in the Bible. I know people might have a bit of trouble pronouncing it in English but his first name is simple so he can go by either or.
By the way, he is 3-months old and he is gorgeous. I know that the strength of his name will destine him for greatness and success." Aug. 10, 2008:

"My name is Misael. A lot of my Spanish-speaking friends call me Misa. My non-Spanish speaking friends call me ME-sy-el. At work, most everyone calls me Missle if they can't pronounce my name in Spanish or English. The nickname has stuck and now even those co-workers who can pronounce it also call me Missle, sometimes.
Other ways people have pronounced my name (And which I DO NOT like) are "me-sa-AL", "mih-ZELL", "mih-SALL", and "measle", among many others.
In high school and part of college, I always explained to non-Spanish speakers that my name was pronounced "ME-sy-el." But now that I am entering the workforce I have found myself Anglocizing my name a bit when introducing myself and pronouncing it "MIH-sy-el." But reading other's post here has made me realize that there's nothing wrong with ME-sy-el. This is a lot closer to the Spanish pronunciation of the name, and therefore I will introduce myself this way from now on.
I like that I have a unique name (I have never met anyone in the U.S. with the same name, though I know they're out there). I just don't like that most non-Spanish speakers can't pronounce it, or that there isn't a single correct way to pronounce it in English. It's kind of up to you how you want people to pronounce your name in English, and that can get annoying sometimes. In the end, however, I wouldn't change my name to anything else." Sep. 27, 2011:

"Hi hi! My name is also Misael, but the spelling is different on my birth certificate it's Missael. I'm from Mexico. but i've lived in the States, Germany and Holland and people say my name in different ways. Some friends and people in the States used to call me "missile" or "misel" and it was fine for me. Almost all Europeans say my name in the proper way, especially those of Judeo ancestry. Here in Holland where i live now i went through a very weird experience where this lady called me Miseil" i didn't understand why she couldn't pronunce it right, but later on i found out she was from Iceland and that it was hard for her to say it in the Spanish way. Well i hope i can meet someone with my name in the future and just calle each other Misa". Cheers." Jul. 21, 2008:
