If your name is Michelle, discipline and hard work are the hallmarks of your life. You are the kind of person that everyone counts on, and with good reason. You are organized, meticulous, and a hard worker. You never overlook a detail and have a way of looking at everything quite logically. You don’t like to be rushed because you value quality and perfection, but once you commit to doing something, there is no question that you are going to get it done, and the word “dependable” suits you perfectly. On occasion, you find it difficult to take suggestions and advice from others, but that’s really mostly due to your incredibly logical and meticulous nature. It’s hard to take advice from those more influenced by emotion!
You generally follow the rules, and you prefer to steer clear of controversy or other types of nonsense that keep you from getting things done. Change is a difficult thing for you, and you would prefer a daily routine that is predictable but productive with hard work. All of these qualities and skills make you the kind of person that supports those around her. You are indispensable in your community, in your relationships, in your family, and at work.

The name Michael evolved into the French form Michel, which was the name of Michel de Notredame (better known as the 16th century astrologer and predictor of the future Nostradamus).
