Michaela

Though the popular perception is that Michaela is a relatively new name, and a version of Michelle, the exact opposite is true and Michaela is the original. Michaela has a long history, and many spellings are well grounded in various ethnic traditions. One of the firsts was the biblical Michal: King Saul’s daughter and the first wife of David.
