I love [name_u]Micah[/name_u]! Really dislike [name_u]Kai[/name_u]!

For me it would easily have to be [name_u]Micah[/name_u]. [name_u]Kai[/name_u] isn’t really a name to me as it means food in Maori where I live in NZ.

[name_u]Micah[/name_u] got my vote.

I prefer [name_u]Micah[/name_u], but you might consider [name_m]Makai[/name_m], which means “towards the ocean” in Hawaiian.

[name_u]Kai[/name_u], but [name_u]Micah[/name_u] isn’t bad

I love [name_u]Micah[/name_u] but adore [name_u]Kai[/name_u], so [name_u]Kai[/name_u] gets my vote.

Both are very popular at the moment but I chose [name_u]Kai[/name_u] because I don’t like the soft sound of [name_u]Micah[/name_u], but that’s just a personal sound preference.

I like [name_u]Micah[/name_u]! Also, [name_m]Malachi[/name_m] would be kind of a cross between the two!

I prefer [name_u]Kai[/name_u].

I voted for [name_u]Micah[/name_u]. [name_u]Kai[/name_u] is waaaay too trendy at the minute. And like a pp said, it reminds me of the Maori word for food too much.

[name_u]Kai[/name_u] is at the top of my list if we’re having a son, so I voted for that one. Yes, it means food in Maori, but is also has a long list of other meanings, most of which are quite lovely: Kai (name) - Wikipedia

[name_u]Micah[/name_u] is also a really nice choice though. Tough call, but you can’t go wrong either way!

I’m fond of [name_u]Micah[/name_u] and don’t like [name_u]Kai[/name_u]. I could deal with [name_u]Cai[/name_u] as a nickname but would go with [name_m]Mordecai[/name_m] or [name_m]Malachi[/name_m] as a long form.

Really I love short Biblical names like [name_u]Micah[/name_u]/[name_m]Ezra[/name_m]/[name_m]Judah[/name_m] and [name_m]Eli[/name_m]/[name_m]Levi[/name_m]/[name_u]Ari[/name_u]/[name_m]Asher[/name_m] and it’s pretty much my favourite style.

I prefer [name_u]Micah[/name_u], but I think they’re both great names!

[name_u]Kai[/name_u] feels much cooler/more current to me. I only know [name_u]Micah[/name_u]'s in their late 30’s, so it doesn’t have the freshest feel to me. [name_u]Kai[/name_u] is soft yet edgy at the same time.

[name_u]Micah[/name_u]! I like both, but I love [name_u]Micah[/name_u]. (There also happens to be an adorable little Ghanaian-American little boy in my church whose name is [name_u]Micah[/name_u], and he’s definitely made me appreciate [name_u]Micah[/name_u]'s value!) I like [name_u]Kai[/name_u] as a nn for [name_u]Schuyler[/name_u], or [name_m]Caius[/name_m], too–I probably wouldn’t use [name_m]JUST[/name_m] [name_u]Kai[/name_u] on its own, even though I like it a lot.
