It may interest you to know that Michael is something like #1075 in a serial ordering of English words by frequency of appearance in print. Not names, words! I was born 60+ years ago, and Michael was in the top 5 names then. It still is, and I don't think it has ever fallen significantly below that in the intervening years.
It seems that people are just predisposed to like someone named Michael.
My parents messed up*a lot of decisions, but they got it right when they named me.
