"OK, so my name is Mitchell (1997) and I've never met anyone else with that name (guess it doesn't help that I live in Mexico) but I like that it's such a unique but not extremely rare name. Btw, this page feels like a community of Mitchells, it's AWESOME." Sep. 12, 2017:

"My son's name is Mitchell- he is 14-
He only goes by Mitchell- I still love
the name- the only problem we have with
it is that our last name is more like a
first name -so his name often gets switched
to his last name! I also called him Mitchy
when he was younger and Mitchy moo!
It's a name that sounds good your whole
life." Jan. 30, 2009:
"My name is Michael and I was thinking of naming my future son Mitchell. Interesting how this name is a close variant of Michael. It's perfect." Jan. 18, 2009:
"I was born in 1962 and my first name is Mitchell. My friends' parents would usually call me Michael by mistake. When I was 13, I decided I wanted to be called Mitch and it's been that way ever since. One friend's dad used to call me Midge. He was weird anyway." Dec. 31, 2008:
"my name is mitchell and i like it. like someone else said i can use mitch around friends and use mitchell when i want to sound professional and stuff. so it works i guess" Oct. 19, 2008:
"I was born in 1976 and my parents named me Mitchell because the liked the name. I like the name, though most of my friends call me Mitch. My only gripes about it is that it is mostly used as a last name. However, I do like the fact that there are only a few of us around." Jun. 12, 2008:
"I named my eldest son Mitchell (back in 1997)because it's close to his dad's name Michael who was nicknamed "Mitchy" by his brother. So Mitchell goes also by: Mitch, Mitchy, and Mitchy Moo Moo. lol It's a great name and never became real trendy which is a good thing. No regrets here." Jan. 7, 2008:
"I named my son Mitchell since it is similar to his father's name: Michael. But it has a different feel. It is classic anglo-saxon, so it provokes a crisp, upper-class kind of feeling. I still can't believe that we refer to him often as Mitchie. It seems so silly, but he's little so it works for now. I like that he can use Mitchell professionally and be Mitch with his friends since it is a little more accessible. Also, it's easy to spell and no one misunderstands what his name is." Dec. 16, 2007:
"My twin sons name is Mitchell. Love the name and I can't really explain it but he is a Mitchell in every way!" Nov. 8, 2007:

"Love it my middle son is Mitchell. He is a strong personality, kind soul, athlete, and 20 now. I used to call him Mitchy but 100% of his friends call him Mitch, but his girlfriend of 2 years always calls him Mitchell. I always use his name both ways. I love that it still is not common. Only rarely will I hear someone else with the same name. My other kids have more common names Nicholas/Nick, Caleb, Ethan, Rylee (minus the spelling)" May. 16, 2019:
"My Brother Mitchell is one of the coolest people i know, Mitch, bub if you are reading this i love you so so so much i want you to know you are the best bro ever! Dominic is a pain but you can be, too XD!
- Love Shelby Forsythe/ Sissy" Dec. 14, 2018:
"This is a very nice, classic name, though I do see it more as a "dad name" or "grandad name" than a "boy name", but it's still nice. I wouldn't personally use it for my own son, though." Dec. 1, 2017:
"Sounds like an old grandfather to me. It's pretty much in the same category as Arthur, Ernest, Alfred, Frank and Stanley, as well as "old lady" names like Gertrude, Ethel, Edith, Agnes, Florence, and Mildred." Feb. 7, 2017:
"I'm called Mitchell and I like it. However, it makes me think of an old man with a hunched back and a walking stick, so it wouldn't really fit a little boy." Oct. 25, 2016:
"My name is Mitchell, too. My nicknames are Mitch, Mitchy, Mitty, and Mitchers. The weirdest one is the last one, I'd say lol" Dec. 13, 2007:
