  • I have two children ages 5 and 9 and have not known any Micahs, if that is helpful.

  • I don't think it is common. I know a girl that is named Micah. I had never heard that name before meeting her :)

  • I don't think it's a popular name. I have only known one Micah all my life. It was a girl. I think her name was spelled Mika.

  • If you like it name your child that. Are you really one that is caring that much about what others think your kid is named?

  • It's just up to you and how comfortable you are with it being a popular name. I don't think it's even that popular though. We really don't even consider how popular a name is, we only consider how much we like it. So far for us it seems like our boys are going to have a Bible name trend and our girls are going to have a top 10 trend. We have an Elijah, an Isabella, and a Jeremiah. If Jeremiah was a girl he would have probably been Olivia, and we also really like the name Chloe. I didn't realize Isabella was as popular as it was when I named her that, but I haven't regretted it for 1 second, I love her name and I think it fits her perfectly.

  • Go to the social security website and it will tell you how popular a name is

  • I don't think it's too common. I don't know of anyone that's named that.
