    Misha is diminutive of Michael or Mikhail (russian version).
    That's my father's and my son's name

    When I was reading this topic I didn't look on the date.
    In Russia only boys have the name Mischa. So it was funny to me to know that it's used as a girl's name.

    I'm sorry if I made a mistake when I wrote here.
    Please, correct the mistakes in my English sentences.

    S-Miller, you don't have to apologize. Yazeed is a bully and needs standing up to.

    I the US, it can be a boy's or a girl's name. I've seen both.

    No surprise, people just like it how it sounds and call their baby so. I doubt anybody would have named a girld Michael


    How do they spell it? Meesha? or Misha (какая-то Майша получается).
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    You are wrong about girls named Michael. It is not common but it happens:

    Michael Learned is a four-time Emmy-winning and Golden Globe-nominated American actress best known for her role as Olivia Walton on The Waltons.


    As for spelling:

    It can be Misha, Mischa, or Meesha.

    Nobody would blame the Americans for this. Is there any strictly male or female name? Have anyone named a boy Jessica, yet? Or Mary perhaps? Mary is a perfect name for a boy.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    No but you can find Jessie (girl) and Jesse (boy)'

    Yeah, it happens, because some people are extra creative picking names for their children. Not long ago I've read a thread about picking name for a baby, and all agreed that Prizma is the best name for a girl. Come on! How can you name your baby like that? Why not the Triangle or Median?

    Also when people take name from other culture they often don't care about it's origins and other picularities (and probably they have right not to). But in Russia Misha is a boy's name, always was and I hope it won't change.

    The same annoying thing happened to nice Russian male name Nikita. Probably most people think a name ending with 'a' is a female one on default, but I realy cringe every time I see on TV girls with 100% male names.

    In last Hannibal movie they made the same stupid mistake. The name of Hannibal's sister is Misha. I could buy it if they lived in America or something, but in USSR it was just plain impossible (well, the movie was unbelievable anyway, so who cares )

    Isn't Misha a type of an African name in English? I'm used to hearing such names from black people in the movies etc'. Like Kisha, Tisha, Esha, Latisha, Lakrisha, Monisha etc.

    Вообще Миша - имя библейского архангела, потому - еврейское, и теоретически, раз ангелы не имеют пола, то это имя, в принципе, можно давать и мальчикам и девочкам.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archangel_Michael

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael

    Между прочим, я не знаю как дела обстоят в других конфессиях, но русская православная церковь не крестит детей именами Михаил, Гавриил, Ираклий, Дмитрий, Денис и др.

    Вместо этого им при крещении дают другие имена.
    Намример меня Рамилем тоже не крестили - крестили Романом, так что моё второе имя Рома

    Странно, ведь многие православные священники носят имена Михаил, Гавриил и Дмитрий, а при рукоположении мирское неканоническое имя меняется на церковное.

    И, ведь, есть же православные святые, носившие эти имена.
    Я так думаю.

    Я не знаю, может это зависит от личных заморочек каждого конкретного попа, но со мной крестился муж двоюродной сестры моей матери Миша - так вот батюшка его Михаилом крестить не стал.

    Дмитрий - вообще языческое имя (тоже, правда не русское, греческое, вроде как по имени богини Деметры).
