Michelle

who resembles God
ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 451
There’s no Michelle more well-known than former first lady Michelle Obama. In fact, her popularity has helped keep the name on the charts, though if parents want a feminine form of Michael, they’re more likely to go with Michaela. Michelle is the anglicized version of the French Michele, and it means “who resembles God,” so it has a strong religious link. Michelle first took off in the 1940s and was reinvigorated when the Beatles released a love song of the same name in 1965.
