Hi I've been reading the discussions about the name Yechial and Michael
there is another connection, many Yechial's are also Michal there full name
would be Yechial Michal. I'm told that there was a very important Shephardi
Rabbi named Yechial Michal, whose followers ended up in Poland, so that the
combination of the two names became very popular. So maybe the Micheal is
not >from the Yechial part of their name but rather >from the Michal.
