Looking at BTN, I found Michelina, Mikkeline and Mihaela, which are interesting. A Michelina (which is said mee-kuh-LEE-nuh- and the Polish form is Michalina) and Mikkeline could have the nickname Mikki, Mika (me-kuh) and Lina. Mihaela could be a Mila.
Or, you could go with Mika, which is a separate name entirely, said Mee-kuh, which means 'beautiful fragrance'. (I have no idea where NB got the meaning 'God's child' for it. That would be Kamiko- and I don't know if that's an actually Japanese name). Mika sounds a lot like Michael, and could work as a way to honor someone.~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor maeve "lena" ~ vivienne isla ~ celia matilda "cici" ~ catherine aiko "rin" ~ elsa verity ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai nicholas ~ ezra link ~ avery thomas ~ michael satoshi "mischa" ~ finn jeremias ~ ezekiel hayden ~ alexander rowan "sacha" ~

I like Michelle, it also has the nickname Elle, which is a good name for a teenager that's outgrown the nn Ellie. I recently heard the name Misha which I am in LOVE with! If I were you I'd go with Michelle if your looking for a common name with a nn, but Misha if you really don't care if it's not popular or has no nn. I know a Myka (my-kuh) whose name is often pronounced mee-kuh or even mick-uh

Hakuna matata, it means no worries for the rest of your days.
Stars can't shine without darkness.
You can't have a better tommorow if you keep thinking about yesterday.

Some others that may help with your brainstorming:
Marcheline - I prefer this to Michelle, I agree that Michelle feels dated. Marcheline is french meaning 'warrior' which I think is gorgeous
Milena - Although it sounds kind of foreign and untraditional it's a beautiful name with a nice meaning (love, warmth, grace)
Mireya - One of my favorites right now. It's similar to Michaela in a way, yet lacks the popularity and has its own unique flair.
Miyah - Just an alternative spelling to Mya that resembles Michael more.
