Mischa is a gender-neutral name with a beautiful sound and unique spelling. A diminutive of Michael, Mischa was definitively a masculine name until the early 2000s, when actress Mischa Barton of The OC popularized it as a girl’s name. Hebrew and Russian in origin, Mischa means “who is like God?” While the question mark might raise some eyebrows, baby Mischa will certainly be divine in your eyes, especially with such a sweet and noteworthy name.
