"I was named Michal in 1951 so I have a hard time believing that the name was only used in 1942 by 81 people. Google it. The name is Hebrew and means "brook." It is not a female version of "Michael" which means "Who is like God?" "Michal" is a popular name in Israel.
My mom chose my name when she was a young girl listening to radio Bible stories in the 1930's. Princess Michal was the daughter of Saul and later the first wife of King David. I've read two novels based upon her.
"Michal" is the middle name of my daughter and my granddaughter. Yes, it's uncommon and has presented some challenges from getting assigned to boys' gym classes to mispronunciation but it's "my" name and I've been defending and explaining it for 63 years. I've never used a nickname. I know another Michal Ann who is in her 40's and she was called "Mickey" when she was little." May. 20, 2015:
