I wish to thank Fredel, Douglas, Malka, Yoav, Keith, Yitschok and Diane who wrote about the fathers name of Sarah that I was asking about.   I hope I included all the people that helped me.  I apologize if I left someone off the list but please accept my thanks.

Fredel explained that the last syllable would sound exactly like the first syllable in the word "challah".
 
Here is the final consensus.
 
Michal would be pronounced Mee-chal is a girl's name.
 
Michel would be pronounced Mich'l is a man's name.
 
In both cases, the "ch" is pronounced like that in Chanukah, not like in chair.
