  • "My name is Micah and I'm a girl but the reason why I got my name is because my father's name is Micheal and Micah can be feminized version of that." Oct. 9, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "I personally love the name Micah. It will give me a gender neutral name for job applications, and it's unique enough that the odds of me being confused with another Micah are very, very low. However, for those of you planning to name your daughters "Micah Michelle"- please don't. I personally hate having a gender neutral name mashed up with such a girly name; I'd rather my middle name be a traditional family name. Plus, Micah and Michelle literally mean the same thing; "Who is like God." Micah is a great choice for male or female children, and I personally can say that it has actually benefited my life greatly." Jun. 12, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love this name as a boy's name but I hate it as a girl's name. It's a man's name in the Bible. Stop naming your girls after a boy's name!" Apr. 6, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our daughter Micah, pronounced MEE-Kah. Most people want to pronounce it MIKE-ah. I think it's a beautiful, unique name for a boy or a girl. I tend to think for a boy it is better to pronounce Mike-ah, and for a girl Mee-ka. Her twin sister is named Hannah, and we thought the names go really well together." Nov. 29, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My sons name is Micah.. To me its a masculine name. Because its been a guys name for thousands of years.. Read the bible people, Micah in the bible was a MALE prophet. Just because it has the ah sound at the end doesnt make it a girls name. Think elijah, isaiah, ezra, nehemiah, all male names!" Jun. 19, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my female German Shepard Micah... I pronounce it Mee-kah. Most people say My- ka when they see it. I absolutely love the name and would never change naming her that. It is such a nice name but I would never use it on a human child. Not pronounced as Mee- kah anyway. Maybe My- kah for a boy" Oct. 6, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am naming my daughter Mikah, and I love the name! The biblical meaning is great and i wanted my child's name to have meaning...not jus some random name or everyday name on the street. So many people pause and want to say it's a boys name when they ask me what we're naming her, but I think it could go either way. I know a girl named Micca, pronounced the same way and Micha. I think its a matter of opinion, and if you're willing to stand by your child's name....it's your child...name them what you want regardless of what people may think or say! It'll grow on them after a while anyway! :)" Sep. 29, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "Micah is the name of one of my best friends. She is a brilliant student especially in Maths and Chemistry. She has a good voice and sings English and Hindi songs very well. She is the thinnest girl in my class but she is so pretty. She is not emotionally strong. Even if she loses one or two marks in an exam, she begins to cry. Sometimes she is so funny too. She has a good cooperative behaviour and she is a good painter and artist as well. According to my knowledge, the name 'Micah' means one who resembles God. It is a Christian name and is a very fashionable as well as meaninful name." Aug. 6, 2011: Report as inappropriate

Its such a masculine name why would anyone name a girl that? its just ugly as a girls name you might as well name her fred or george!" I wholeheartedly agree with this comment. Anyone who has ever picked up a bible knows Micah is a male name. Micah was a powerful prophet and was definitely a MAN!

  • "My name is Micah, and I'm a girl! Some people who think it is more of a boy's name, that doesn't sound right to me. And I get really mad when I look at baby names websites and it says "Boy" instead of "Both". My opinion is that Micah fits a girl better. So if there was a "edit" thing on those websites, I would change it to girl, or at least "both". My dad named me that after this woman he met at a pizza place and she worked there with my dad and his friends (they were about 15 or 16 then and she was maybe in her 20's or 30's) and she didn't call them "dumb little boys" like some other girls did. He decided that if he ever had a GIRL he would name her Micah. They even had my brother before me and didn't even THINK about naming him Micah. People always misspell my name as "Micha" and I'm like "OMG, my name isn't MITCH-ah it is MYE-cah." Once someone spelled it like "Micaiah" but it is usually like "Micha"."

I also believe it is SEXIST to say that Micah is a guy's name only. I understand that Micah the prophet was a guy, but WHO CARES? I was named Micah because I am Japanese and Jewish and it is the same in both languages. In Japanese, Micah means, "beautiful, fragrance" or "divine." Plus, Micah sounds UGLY AS A BOY'S NAME. It's like naming a boy "Kate" or "Belle."" Mar. 25, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Bible or not, this is a butt-ugly name in English. Sounds more feminine than masculine in English due to the "ah" ending, but whatever. It's still butt. Lots of boys' names get comandeered as girls' names, some so much so that we've lost track that they were originally boys' names: Ashley, Lesley, etc. Another annoying trend is to give a girl a surname as her first name. If that's a family tradition, great, but when you think it's cute and unique to call your baby daughter "MacKenzie", or "Madison" it's neither cute nor remotely unique. Two of the poppiest names of the last 20 years." Dec. 10, 2013: Report as inappropriate

Now it seems every where I turn there is a baby or child named Micah. The ah at the end of the name can make it feminine and I have never felt that it was strictly a boy or girls name.
