"my name is Micaela and when i was little i hated it! But then i took a spanish class my freshman year and i realized how pretty it is when you pronounce it with an accent (Me-ky-ayla). I now appreciate my name." Jun. 29, 2010:
"My name is Micaela. I also like the internationality of it. This particular way of spelling it is my favorite...I'm so glad my parents chose it. This name can come attached to a few unwanted nicknames but it all depends on preference with that. I know quite a few Micaela's but we all spell it differently. Dr Quinn quickly became my hero :)
[but maybe that's just cause I wanna guy like Sully *sigh*]" Dec. 23, 2008:

"i like my name because i dont know many micaelas out there but people often spell my name MICEALA and that is not right so that makes me very mad and my sisters gave me the nickname MICE-ALA and i also have the nickname MICKI or MICKI MONSTER =)" Jul. 6, 2011:
"My name is also Micaela (born in 1983) and I am happy to hear that there are so many more Micaela's out there! When I was growing up I hated it because nobody I encountered could pronounce it. I even had a period in time where I had people refer to me as "Michelle" since people could pronounce it. I am of Mexican decent and I was named after an aunt who passed away before I was born.
However, I have grown to love my name and the fun nicknames people can come up with for me :) (Meeks, Mics, Ela, Micky, etc). My daughter's middle name is also Micaela." Jan. 26, 2011:
"My daughter was born 3 weeks ago and we named her Michaela. We pronounce it
Mih-kay-la but EVERYONE else seems to pronounce it My-shayla or Michael-a. Im seriously considering removing the h before we get her bith certificate. I really thought Michaela was an easy name to pronounce, but I guess not." Aug. 25, 2008:
"I love being called Micaela, its unusual and special, it has such a lovely sound and the different spelling makes it look prettier than Michaela. A lot of people do spell it wrong though because they automatically put a 'h' into it." Apr. 30, 2008:
"My mommy's name is Micaela. I love it. If i ever have a girl that's what im going to name her. I love the sound, the spelling everything." May. 22, 2007:
"My 10-year old daughter's name is Micaela. The original spelling is "Michaela" but I pulled the "h" out as it looked to masculine to me. I got the name from the movie "Lorenzo's oil". Lorenzo's mother, played by Susan Sarandon, was named Michaela. Then, Dr. Quinn - Medicine Woman - came out and everyone was exposed to this beautiful name. The only thing I don't like about the name is that people are choosing the use the name, but spell it "McKayla" "Makayla", etc. . ." Nov. 14, 2006:
