The word 'Michelle' is used as a feminine name and mostly it is used in the English and French language. While pronouncing the word you should use the word 'sh' for the written term 'ch' and when it comes to the meaning of the word it conveys the idea of somebody who is like god.

The word in its original form doesn't convey the abovementioned meaning but its masculine form 'Michael' is known to convey the idea but as 'Michelle' is also made of the same word, you can figure out the same meaning from this word also.

In religious scripture, the masculine form is being used to name one of the seven archangels that are cited in the Hebrew tradition and it is the only one that is being identified in the Bible as an archangel.
