This name derives from the Hebrew: "mı̂ykâ'êl", derived from the question "mı̂ykâ'êl?" meaning "who is like God?" literally, "who is like El?”. Mikha'el is an archangel associated with defending Israel in the tribulation. The name first appears in the Bible, numbers 13:13, where Sethur the son of Michael is one of twelve spies sent into the land of Canaan. The archangel Michael referred to later in the Bible (Daniel 12:1), is considered a saint by the Roman Catholic Church and Eastern Orthodox Church. September 29th is the feast day of the three archangels, Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael.
