    Micah

    I have only seen Micah used as a girl's name once (and that was on TV). What do people think of using Micah for a girl?

    Micah is a MALE Biblical name so personally I don't like it for a girl. Some religious people find using names of the Bible on the opposite gender quite offensive so just because it's a female name on TV doesn't mean it works in real life. Mica/Mika would be better spellings for a female. I have heard that people who use the name on a female also change the pronunciation (mee-kuh as opposed to my-kuh) which is another problem.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I think it's fine. I know a male Micah and a female Mycah (this spelling), so I think it works.

    Precisely my thoughts.
