Meaning:who resembles God?
Micah is a variation of Michael that appears numerous times in the Bible. The most memorable of these is with Micah of Moresheth, a minor prophet and contemporary of Isaiah who predicts the fall of Jerusalem, the return of the people to the house of the Lord and the coming of the Messiah. While Micah has become more popular, it's not quite as mainstream as its counterpart Michael. Instead, it is seen as a fresh alternative—and one that can also be used for girls.
