English to Russian translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase:Michael
it is my name, i would like to know how to say it in Russian!
Explanation: A name's a name; even in Russian, it is still pronounced pretty much the same way and spelled "Майкл". However, if you mean the corresponding Russian name, that will be Михаил (Mee-ha-'il), or Миша ('Mee-sha) for short.
Just pronounce your name the way, in which it sounds in English. "Michael" (Майкл) is the standard Russian translation of your name; we just spell it differently in Russian (i.e. "Майкл"), because we have a different, non-Latin, alphabet.

If you want to know the Russian version of your name then I sould remind you that the first President's name of the USSR is Michael Gorbachev.In Russian his first name sounds as Mihail and Mischa for short.
All the best!
