How would you spell Michaela? I can't find a spelling that I seem to like but I love the name.
And I need a middle name for Marcus, I've played around with Marcus James, Marcus Caine, Marcus Gregory and Marcus Henry but again, none seem to stand out to me.

Thanks!

My personal favorite is Michaela. But the only other spellings I can think of are McKayla, Mckayla, Mikayla, McCayla, Mackayla, MacKayla.... thats all I can think of <3

Marcus Finn
Marcus Cade
Marcus Nathan
Marcus Zechariah
Marcus Tyler
Marcus Oliver

WDYT? Any of them helpful? :)

I like Marcus Cade and I love Marcus Oliver.
I'm kind of going back and forth between Michaela and McKayla.

Marcus Cade is really handsome! How about;
Marcus Brett
Marcus Lane
Marcus Everett
Marcus Elliott
Marcus Aaron
Marcus Jordan
Marcus Abel
Marcus Tyler
Marcus Oliver
Marcus Brandt
Marcus Ryder
Marcus Raymond
Marcus Jonathan
Marcus Samuel
Marcus Jensen

My sister's name is spelled Mikayla, which I personally think is a bit more attractive. The "Michaela" spelling seems a bit overused :/ We call her "Miki (pron like 'Mickey')" for short. The Mckayla spelling is nice, but looks a bit more made up IMO.

I like the spelling Michaela best, but I don't mind Mikayla. I agree with Laramie... McKayla looks a bit made up.

Other middle names:

Marcus Owen
Marcus Henry
Marcus Ryan
Marcus Paul
Marcus Gregory
Marcus Benjamin
Marcus Reuben
Marcus Anthony
Marcus Felix
Marcus Tyler
Marcus William
Marcus Logan
Marcus Aiden

Thanks guys. If actually only met 3 Michaela/Mikayla/Makaylas in my life. I think I might stick with the traditional spelling although I really like Mickey as a nn.
Martin loves Marcus Anthony but he also suggested Marcus Simon, which surprised me, so opinions on that?
And I just thought of this but Marcus Reid?
