If you like angels, consider Mikayla, the feminine form of Michael, an archangel who carried out God’s judgments and is known as the patron saint of soldiers. The name has Hebrew origins and is associated with power and strength, two awesome traits to instill in your child. Mikayla is a close relation to Michaela but has actually eclipsed it in terms of popularity. Though a third spelling, Makayla, beats them both in terms of ranking. Whichever variation you choose, Mikayla is always a fabulous choice!
