  • "I named my youngest child Michaela in October 1993. Pronounced Muh kay luh. I named her after Dr.Quinn Medicine woman. She likes her name but has had the same problems of her name being mispronounced, misspelled and not being able to find her name on personalized items. Were we live now, there are probably 4 other M Michaelas' , different spellings." May. 8, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like my name....but since recently people naming their daughter makayla dont even realize that their daughters name is a variant of michael......One day you realize your no longer a michaela your just another Mikayla......so everyone thinks your a tramp because the variant is trendy."

  • "Hi(: I'm also a Michaela pronounced (muh-kayla)!(: I do love my name, but it's hard for people to spell & pronounce correctly. I sometimes get annoyed when people can't get my name right. It really bothers me when people call me "me-kayla" or michael-ah.I always have to say umm it's michaela.. But a bonus to having my name is I'm the only Michaela in my school so I like having a name that no one else has. I often get comments on how beautiful my name is(: & I never get confused with another kid so that's another bonus. One thing I hated alot when I was younger was My name was never on "personalize it" items :/ I remember that always made me mad as a young child." Aug. 29, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a "Michaela Marya" born in 1971. It was not overly uncommon to hear the name in 1970 or '71 in the UK or Australia - I think a considerable number of parents selected the name after hearing it for the first time on an English BBC (ABC in Australia) wildlife programme starring the couple MICHAELA and ARMAND DENIS. Perhaps this is also true of other Commonwealth nations where the programme aired. I've heard pronunications vary from mi-kay-la to mi-ky-la to mi-kar-la (for those born in the'70s) but the mainstream pronunciation today seems to be mi-kay-la, with phonetic spellings gaining popularity."

  • "My name is Michaela (Mic-eye-la or Muh-ky-la, if you say it fast). I HATE being called Me-kay-la. My family is Scottish descent, and the Gaelic pronounciation is actually Mic-EYE-la, NOT Me-kay-la. That was made popular by Dr. Quinn in the early 90s. So I've had problems recently, because every second little girl is now called some varation of my name, but pronounced the north american way, and so people make the common mistake of calling me Me-Kay-la all the time, and it becomes very tiring. I'm in my mid-thirties and was probably one of the first people to have the name in north america. In Europe, the name is very common and is pronounced the way my name is pronounced. So if you are going to name your child Mic-EYE-la, or Me-KAY-la, please make sure you make people aware of how it is pronounced. It can be very fustrating!" Jan. 13, 2008: Report as inappropriate
