The Top Baby Name is...
Micah (prn. Meekah) Ethan
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.
