That's right...Mike is a boy's name. And yes, it's short for Michael. How'd she get a boy's name? Her parents promised to name their first son after a family friend - but she was the third daughter.


Micki – short for Michaela – is a bi-lingual half-American Swede. She had a dad from Gothenburg, has a mom from Seattle, and spent her formative years adventurously traveling with her family.
