    Exclamation Help with my newfound love!

    So I just found, what I think will be, my next all time favorite name.
    It is Machaiah. Pronounced Mah-kai-ah.
    That's how I saw it spelt when i found it. But I'm contemplating spelling it differently. But I'm not sure what the alternativessential would be. I love the letter K, so if I can sneak that in there that would be great.

    I'm not sure whether I like it better on a boy or a girl either. One of my favorite girl names is Mykah, so I'm leaning towards girl...

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks.

    I think Micajah is the original spelling, but Micaiah is also legitimate. I suppose you could do Mikaiah if you wanted.

    I've never heard the name before, but it sounds intriguing! First hearing it, with its similarity to Micah and Michael, I'd assume boy until proven otherwise.

    I've heard this name before, and the both times I remember it was spelled Makiya. It's a little trendy for my taste, but I kind of like it. Makiya seems a nice less clutters spelling, though I can't say for sure if it's the most classic spelling.

    I've heard this name a few times. The most "famous" example is the second-youngest daughter of the 19 Kids and Counting family, Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar. I would personally probably spell it Makaiah, which you might go for considering you mention liking the K.

    I'd automatically assume this was a girl's name, if I heard it. I like it
