Meaning:who resembles God?
Micah, a variation of Michael, is a gender-neutral name of Hebrew origin. Derived from the Hebrew mikha'el, meaning "who is like the Lord?" Micah is rooted in the biblical prophet Micah of Moresheth. The rhetorical question that forms his title is one that inspires humility—a quality deeply entrenched in Micah's central messages. Opposed to dishonesty, exploitation, and greed, Micah honors a mindset free from the desires of personal ambition. Sharing a common root with the Archangel Michael, Micah embodies truth and justice—a fitting title for a peacemaker in the wings.
