Plenty of parents pick this name because it's classic without sounding old-fashioned. In fact, it's held firm near the top of baby name lists since 1954! A popular biblical choice, Michael is another Hebrew original that stands for "who is like God," which can be quite a lofty expectation for a baby to live up to!

There's no shortage of famous faces with this prestigious moniker. Whether your kid turns out to be into sports (Michael Jordan, Michael Phelps), film (Michael Keaton, Michael Douglas) or music (Michael Jackson), there's someone out there for your little Mikey to model himself after.
