MICHAL (מִיכַל).  fBiblical.  [Hebrew Mikhal = "a brook."  Or possibly, in the present case, it may have been intended as a contraction of Michael = "who is like Jehovah?" (Gesenius)].
    Michal Amdursky, an Israeli dancer and singer.  Michal Heiman, an Israeli artist. (Wiki)

    The younger daughter of king Saul (1 Sam. xiv. 49).  A mutual affection sprang up between her and David, and after a time they were married (xviii. 27, 28).  The wife aided her husband in escaping from her father's machinations, but after the former became a fugitive Saul married her to another man, regardless of the obligations she was under to David (xxv. 44).  When Abner, Ishbosheth's general, sought to make matters up with David, the king required that his wife Michal should be restored to him, which was done (2 Sam. iii. 15).  But she was not to him what she had been in the days of her first love; and when David, in the excess of his religious zeal, danced before the ark, Michal thought he was acting in an undignified manner, and despised him in her heart.  David answered provokingly, and the two became permanently alienated.  After a time Michal died childless (2 Sam. vi. 14-23). (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
