It will always be pronounced wrong. Also Meekah is very feminine sounding.

I've known three and none have ever been pronounced as Mike-ah. All three under six have been pronounced as Mee-Kah

Mika (Me-kuh) is usually the feminine name, Micah(my-kuh) is masculine

My-kuh is the male pronunciation, Mee-kuh is the female pronunciation (usually spelled Mika). Micah is already unisex, so do your son a favor and at least pronounce it the masculine way. My-Kuh is strong and handsome, Mee-Kuh sounds meek & weak.

I've known one Micah (My-kuh), in University, and he HATED when people would call him Mee-Kuh. And I don't blame him.

I agree it will be pronounced wrong. I would stick with the spelling though so he can decide to be called mike-ah when it is his choice.

I agree Mika is Meeks and for a girl
Micah is My kuh and for a boy. It is a Biblical name check the pronunciation in a Bible. I have never heard it pronounced Meeka.

Micah is Mike-ah, boy name.
Mika/Mieke is Meek-ah, girl name.

I suggest keeping the Micah spelling but changing your pronunciation to the more masculine Micah, and using "meeka" as a nickname.

I agree, I'd use the Mykah pronunciation for a boy!!

Thanks, but this is his father's name --pronunciation included -- and will keep it for this reason. Just here for a middle name, did not intend for a debate over the pronunciation of my son's name.
