Meaning:Who is like God?; Who is like Yahweh?
A variation of Micah and resembling Mykayla, Myka is a gender-neutral name of Hebrew origin. Striking for its modern spelling, Myka means "who is like God?" or “who is like Yahweh?” 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, Michal is the only woman in biblical literature to openly love a man without 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.
