    Michaiah in Wikipedia Micah (Hebrew: מִיכָה, Modern Mikha Tiberian Mḵā; pronounced / ˈmaɪkə/ in English) is a given name. Micah is the name of several people in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), and means "who is like God?", in the sense that God is unique. The name is sometimes found with theophoric extensions. Suffix theophory in Yah and in Yahweh results in Michaiah or Michaihu (Hebrew: מִיכָיְהוּ, Modern Mikhayhu Tiberian Mḵā́yh), meaning who is like Yahweh?
