  • Additional Info:
    Micha is a Hebrew name meaning "who is similar?", possibly in the sense of 'without equal'.
    It was borne by several characters in the Old Testament, including a man of the tribe of Benjamin and a minor prophet of the Old Testament who predicted the destruction of Jerusalem.

    Micha (pronounced 'mee-kah') is often used as a contraction of longer forms, such as Micaiah or Michaihu, and the most popular Michael - the suffix 'El' refering to God; hence the meaning "Who is like God?".
    Micha is mostly a pet form of Michael.
