Michal

If you travel to Israel today, odds are you’ll meet a handful of Michals. This is actually not a variation of Michael like the male version, but rather its own name found in the Torah. Michal was a beautiful and strong-willed woman who eventually became the wife of King David, and the name (pronounced mee-CHAL) was largely embraced by the Zionism movement.
