Mickel-angelo is much, much closer to the proper pronunciation than "Michael Angelo". Michael Angelo frankly is flat out wrong.

Is this pronounced Michael-Angelo or MICKel-Angelo? I have heard both ways.

Leonardo Da Vinci was the greatest genius who ever lived and Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the best actors of modern times but people act like Michelangelo is too much to bear because he was a great sculptor? I don't think that's fair.

Shaebaby Says:


I knew a girl in Highschool who named her son Michealangelo. It sounds strange out of context but put to the actual kid it was pretty adorable. She called him Mikey for short!

Yessica Says:


Only acceptable if he has brothers named after the turtles as well.

As a middle name, this would be pretty cool.
