I think to avoid confusion a girl could be Maika, which is pronounced the same but it's a female name and diminutive of Maria and also Spanish, Basque, French, and Japanese.

A boy name. Why would anyone name their girl Micah?

indiefendi2 Says:


I like this and Micaiah for both genders but my aunt wants to use Micah if she has a boy so it's off the table for me. There's still Mischa for me 😝

I knew a girl with an alternate spelling of this name in high school and I truly did think it was a female name, as I have never met a guy with this name in real life.
