    It's pronounced Makayla, it is one of the traditional spelling, the other variants like Makayla, Mikaela came later. I do know a Michaela and I definitely prefer this spelling.

  • It is sort of the same as Makayla but I pronounce Michaela with more of a ee sound and not ay.

    Like:

    Michaela: meh-kay-lah

    Makayla: mah-kay-lah

    Yes I know one person that spells it Michaela.

    Hope I helped! Love from Hope xxxx

    Yes. Michaela is actually the correct spelling. It used to be one of my favorite girl names but now working in a daycare it is so overdone...I've seen so many spellings of it I'm sick of it and don't like it anymore. A small sampling of the spellings I've seen:

    Mikayla

    Makayla

    Mackaela

    Macaylah

    Mcaela

    Michaelah

    Mykaylah

    Mikayla

    I could go one for days. It's one of my pet peeves....people try to get too creative it spellings and ruin a great name :[

    It's pronounced the same.

    My sister's name is Mikayla, and the only reason it wasn't Michaela is because it reminds us of Michael, and someone might think it's pronounced Michael-ah, like youu.

    Ha.

    Yes, it sounds the same as Makayla. I don't know anyone by this name but that's my understanding of it.

    Michaela - mi (as in michelle) -kay-la

    Makayla - ma (as in money) -kay-la

    Most people would just naturally assume they have the same pronunciation because they're so similar, but there is a minor difference.
