We are trying to keep our sons name Spanish sounding. We like the name Michael but not its Spanish translation Miguel.

You are watching: How do you spell michael in spanish

We like the sound of Mikael for a boy, Mee-ka-el. Idk if I"m just saying it too much or staring at it too long but I"m starting to second guess it. I think it"s the spelling and I think people will have trouble pronouncing it.

His first and middle name would be Mikael Isidro. (Isidro after a friend who passed from cancer)

Any suggestions on spelling or other Spanish forms of Michael?

Michael does not translate to Miguetogether , Meh-Gail in English , when you say Michael in Spanish it is Mi-ka-el not Miguel ... Do you speak Spanish ?

xomom,

Yea I speak Spanish and I know with someone having an accent saying Michael in Spanish would pronounce it the way you have it down. But I was interested in a translated form of Michael on paper since we would probably call him Michael or mike

I have no idea what is proper in Spanish (I don"t speak it at all). But, I do prefer Miguel, because I think you wouldn"t really have the pronunciation issues that you would have with Mikeal (I would not know how to say this at all).

Rose&Faye2,

I was afraid of that. Thanks for your honesty! My husband however sees it as a common thing, people mispronouncing most names, so we shouldn"t worry about it but I do

Amelgigi,

That"s true, even common names are mispronounced. I think after being corrected once, there should not be a problem. Best of luck

Miguel is a form of Michael in Spanish. It doesn"t automatically translate though. You could use Mikael like someone suggested.

Forgot another way to spell it. I have a cousin who spells his name as Maikel.

I like Miguel. Micael (nn Mica) or Micah are also variants.

Trying to think of good boy names that translate well. For example it can be Michael as long as there is a spanish interpretation (Miguel). Looking for something outside just the traditional names but it"s hard! Suggestions please!
