Gender: M Meaning of Micah: "who is like the Lord" Origin of Micah: Hebrew Micah's Popularity in 2013: #107

Micah is a biblical name that growing numbers of parents are looking at as a more unusual alternative to Michael, projecting a shinier, more lively image.

Micah is the name of a biblical prophet and was used fairly frequently by the seventeenth century pilgrims. It is also the name of the central character in Arthur Conan Doyle's historical, non-Holmes novel, Micah Clarke, and Micah Sanders was a child prodigy character on Heroes.

Everwood/Grey's Anatomy actress Sarah Drew named her son Micah, as did Neil Diamond and poet Robert Bly.

And although Micah will probably never reach Michael's Number one spot, be aware that it's now just outside the Top 100, and has been advancing every year.
