The name Michael comes from Hebrew and means "Who is like unto God?" It's meant as a rhetorical question with the answer being "nobody". It is the name of the Archangel Michael who drove out Satan and his angels because they refused to bow to God. Satan refused to believe in the supremacy of God, whereas Michael's name itself declares God's power.
The names of the angels Raphael and Gabriel also have meaning. Raphael means "God heals" and Gabriel's name means "God is my strength". The angel Raphael appears in the book of Tobit, which is one of seven books recognized as inspired scripture by Catholics, but rejected by Protestants. As for why Catholics call the angel Michael "St.Michael", the reason is that it's an honorary title that denotes that he is holy or sanctified. The word saint comes from the Latin "sanctus" which means "holy". St. Michael is holy because God made him so.
The angel Michael is a great person to be named after, if you ask me.
Michael also means like God he also fought the devil
I'm sorry but there is no angel mentioned in the Bible by the name "Raphael". In addition, I am a Christian and Michael is still considered an archangel not a saint.
Please people before you put answer out here for others to read...know what you are talking about so that you don't confuse someone else.
Moreover, don't take my word for it, look it up for yourself...you can go to www.biblegateway.com and it has various Bibles you can use to look up references and verses.
The name Michael in Hebrew means "one who is like God". It's derived from the name of the Archangel Michael who is now considered a saint in Christianity. It was Michael who led the armies of Gods angels against Lucifer and returned victorious. Lucifer was a fallen angel whose rebellion against God motivated by pride, was crushed by Michael. The term archangel itself means "Prince of the hosts".
He is one of the three arch angels Gabriel, Michael and Raphael mentioned in the Bible. He finds mention even in Islam along with Gabriel who was the bringer of revelation.
It was a name given to many kings of the Byzantine and Russian Emperors. It is now one of the commonest names of America and is extremely common in the Countries of Europe, in Australia, New Zealand and the catholic countries of Central and Latin America.
