Origin:Hebrew
Meaning:who resembles God?
A variation of Micah, Myka is a feminine name of Hebrew origin. Striking for its unique spelling, Myka means "who is like God?" and finds its roots within the biblical prophet Micah. Yet, one may also trace Myka's lineage to the Israeli princess Michal, daughter of King Saul and first wife of David. Remarkably, Micah is the only woman within the bible to openly love a man without a reserve and embrace her adoration wholeheartedly. Imbued with unconditional devotion, Michal bravely risks her life and defies her father to protect David—a highly courageous act for a woman of her time. Adding a fascinating layer to Myka's long-held translation, Michal inspires one to approach the world with an open heart and valiant spirit.
