Hi, we are just looking for some honest opinions on the name Mikail. Thanks!

It was on my list as we need a Russian name, but sadly clashes with our surname. Prefer Mikhail spelling.

Ah, we are Muslim! Thank you for your positive comment smile

I think I have a cousin called Mikail (one of my few hundred cousins. Or maybe he's the DH of a cousin).

I really the name smile! I think I prefer Misha, but that's more of a nickname, isn't it...

Yes, I think Misha is a Russian nickname smile

Reminds me of Mikhail Gorbachev. But it's a perfectly nice name.

Gorbachev. As Mitzy said, it's a nice name though. And younger people than me (40s) won't remember the Russian pres.

Like it. It hasnt become as common as adam/daniyal/kamran/sara/zara/natasha/amelia. Can you tell i hear those names a lot?!

This is the pronunciation of my uncles name, but here it is spelt Michael

I don't mind it. It would be open to misspelling but that could be said of almost any non-Western name.

I really like Kiyan as a name, not that you asked wink

Angelic 😊

Not a fan because of the Russian-or-Asian confusion.
