My little girl gets frustrated with people pronouncing it MA-kayla and she tells them it is pronounced MI-cayla MI, like Mickey mouse. It is really cute and I get so many compliments on her name Micayla Paige. I think it is a beautiful name.

"My name is Micayla.
I have met other people with the same name but their spelling has never been the same as mine. I am always correcting people of how to spell my name. They usually spell it "Michaela" or "Mikaela". My name has been pronounced incorrectly a few times eg. Mik-i-la. It is actually pronounced basically how it is spelt eg. Mic-ay-la." Sep. 17, 2006:
